I have been riding for 5 weeks now (one lesson of half an hour a week) and im getting pretty good at it. I can ride on my own in a rising trot and im starting cantering.

Anyways, i was in the sand arena riding round, when i was told to go from b-e then in anti-clockwise, so i did. As i did this boy rode into the arena in a huge horse. he was just cantering round, trying to keep out of my way, then he went into rising trot. He was just rising casually when he came really close to me on his huge horse and he literally screamed!

He looked at me and i knew he had just hit his nuts off the bridge of the saddle. Anyway, as he screamed, his horse spooked and almost trampled Lacy who i was riding at the tim, so Lacy darted out the arena and i totally lost control of her. I was just hurling the reins back trying to stop her, then she stopped all of a sudden and i went straight over her head and into a pile of manure. BEAUTIFUL huh?

My helmet still smells.

if you're starting cantering shouldn't you be able to do sitting trot first? you said you can only do rising trot but you need to be able to sit to the trot to canter.
