I am so excited right now!! SHANE DID UNBELIEVABLE!!! He had the whole arena to himself again. He did a whole bunch of new positions too! He started his ride just like every other, on his back, so he could warm up. Then he sat up and had his hands around the surcingle, which for those of you who don't know what that is, I put a picture below. He was doing most of the work himself which was pretty cool to see and he was holding his head up nice and high. He was so proud of himself! Another new thing that we did was the ring game. Miss Pam got Shane a ring to hold, he held on to it for a whole circle, and then put it on the pole! He focused on watching the ring slide down the pole too. Then for a few circles, he sat backwards. At the end of his lesson I finally got him to use his voice to tell his horse to walk on. He just did so good and I'm so proud of him! Way to go Shanerrrr!

Cowboy Shane

Shane had another all star lesson today! He rode Tobi and used the handlebar! He sat up nice and tall, I held his body and Miss Judie held his hands on. He did so good!! I think he liked it too. He looked like a real cowboy! He promised he would be good for the other volunteers on Thursday since I won't be there, so we'll see! He better show off for everyone else!

Squish the Dice

So Shane had the whole arena to himself today! He rode Tobi. I think he really likes Tobi! Now he is eye level with me, which isn't hard to do, but he likes to look around! Miss Pam wanted to try something new with him so he got to ride backwards and squish down a pair of dice. He was really focused on it since this was a new toy for Shaner! He worked hard, as always!

Pants Party

SHANE DID AMAZING TODAY!! He worked so hard holding his head up and looking around. He even got to sit up backwards on his horse! He was just grins and giggles doing that. He seemed to be very fascinated with Seren's tail. Froggy is not his favorite position but he always does such a good job! He also picked up a new nickname...Squeaky! He's working hard on using his voice to tell his horse to walk on so it only seems fitting. Just add it to the repertoire!
