Re: What should I be prepared for when starting?

Hi Sammy, & welcome!
Another horsey Aikido newbie here. I've been riding (not particularly well) for years, and doing Aikido since May. It was Mark Rashid's book "Horsemanship Through Life" that brought me to the dojo. You might want to read it. It has a lot of insightful observations on what it feels like to be a complete beginner in Aikido.
