FIRST TIME IN A RIDING ARENA

Lili had her first ever riding lesson in an arena yesterday. It was a great experience, but challenging for Lili as the instructor spoke zero English. (Uncommon, but still possible in Finland especially in the rural areas.) Tonight we will see another riding school.  Here are a couple of pictures from yesterday of Lili on  Ellu.

The terminology is not totally intuitive to pick up on the go - here is a taste: 

walk - käynti

trot - ravi

canter - juoksulaukka

Phew. Well done Lili!
