I Sat on Robin!

I sat on Robin! Three or four times now, for between one and three seconds. It's a big thrill for me. I've had her for a little over a year, and have not been on a horse in about two years. So far so good. I have not asked Robin to take a single step-just stand there, let me sit, and get a click and treat. What comes next? I'm not sure. She can be a lot of horse. I want to just amble around on her and let her get used to things, but she also needs work on ground-driving and verbal cues, and not biting, and you name it.
But it felt good to be back in the saddle, even briefly. A milestone, and the next milestone will be when she takes her first step with me on her.
