Facts from Thomas

Thomas is one of Lin's young students in the lesson program. He is learning how to ride and has discovered some very important pieces of information about riding. He wants everyone to know. This is the first in the series with Thomas demostrating.

Thomas says, "Make sure you are holding your reins in the same hand of the direction you are going to turn."

"Always look in the direction you want to go."

"If you turn your body and use your leg to turn, you don't need to use so much rein."

"If a horse moves too fast, relax and ask him to slow down.  Don't raise your voice because it might scare him."
