We did it!

I got on Drifter today. I sat on my horse!

I lunged her with the bridle, walk, trot, canter, in both directions. Then I worked more on bellying-up on her. I did a ground mount from the left and right and bellied-up and she stood real nice. So, I just swung my leg over and slowly sat up. I looked down at her neck and ears and saw that I was actually sitting on TOP of her. I took a deep breath and slowly swung down. I was really excited, so I did not do it a second time because I knew she would pick up on me being excited. I just quit while ahead.

She was very good.
