My first riding lesson!

Dominic had his first riding lesson today and had a great time.  Despite having to wear girly pink boots and the horse being called teddy and not JoJo (Dominic seemed to want to ride a horse called JoJo for some reason!) he thoroughly enjoyed it.  He sat beautifully and his instructor appears to be cut from the same cloth as his physio Robyn and didnt let him get away with any leaning on her or not paying attention but she was lovely with it.  I put on my wish list when we first applied for SDR that I would love Dominic to be able to open his legs enough to go horse riding and Dr park on acceptance said he would be able to and today he proved him right.  Without the operation he wouldnt have had a chance of doing it and today he sat comfortably on a normal saddle and could move his legs into the stirrups and balance on there on his own.  Very excited and was lovely to watch.  Great way to disguise todays physio session, worked really hard and had great fun.  Back next week for more!
