Soooo today was my first lesson at horse riding... It went pretty good but it was kinda nerve racking cause the horse kept pulling his head down and i had to pull him back up... He's strong so it was a struggle lol, my fingers started hurting me coz of the strength i had to put in to pull his head back up.. Anyways... I'm a bit nervous about tomorrow.. Any tips to be confident while riding it? And i will be glad to read your experiences. :)

The first time is always like that :) you'll feel more comfortable as u gain more experience, in my opinion, the connection with the horse is what matters the most, it's all about trusting each other and feeling comfortable with the animal, so try to work in the relationship with it and the ride will be better for u and the horse :)
As for the head, if it's relaxed, leave it like that, u don't need to pull it up, u need to do that if it suddenly puts the head down while it is going faster or something coz that could mean it's gonna try to do those crazy jumps lol so to avoid it, u pull the head up.
When riding horses is very important to understand their behaviour, u can read them by looking at the movement of the ears, that helps a lot, different positions mean different things, so if u have time to read about it, give it a go, is very interesting :)0
