Riding Lessons

On the heels of my post a few days ago, I can report that Lorna is no longer the isolated homeschooler! Today she started horseback riding lessons in the hopes that she will gain confidence with her own horse.

I am very excited about this opportunity that she has been given. She has a job watering the neighbors flowers which pays her almost enough for one lesson a month. Her grandparents have all offered to help out with the expenses so that she can have 2 lessons a month. Thank you grandparents!

The instructor is a very nice younger woman with loads of experience. Since the lessons are private she can adapt to what Lorna needs and work with her strengths. By the end of the lesson today she had Lorna riding with her hands raised and eyes closed, which is a major accomplishment!

What fun! How very exciting. With such progress in the first lesson it sounds like your goals will be accomplished.

Woohoo! Congrats to Lorna on her accomplishments. Let's hear it for grandparents who sometimes make magical things happen : )

Amen to what presbytera said. We are another family in which certain lessons are provided in part through the assistance of grandparents. What a blessing! I pray some day to be able to do the same for my grandchildren.
