Awhile ago we were invited to come ride horses at a friend’s house and it finally worked for us to go this weekend. Our son was very excited, but while we were driving to their house he was really quiet. Being the chatterbox that he is I thought something might be wrong, so I asked him if he was nervous about riding a horse. He said ‘yes’. He said that he would feel much better if his dad rode a horse too. I don’t know if my husband was going to riding a horse or not, but this sealed the deal. I’m glad it did, because it was fun for all of us to ride. Plus it gave us the opportunity to have a really nice family photo taken…
My son’s horses name was Luv.
She certainly was a ‘love’. What a perfect horse for him to start on!
Kristi helped him with the cues and the finer details of how to start and stop and then he was off…
Pretty soon he was walking, trotting, stopping, circling, and backing! He had so much FUN!
Here is my husband on ‘George’.
This is the beauty I got to ride, her name is ‘Darla’. It was fun to ride again and I couldn’t have asked for a nicer horse.
After we rode, there was a little bit of time for my son to play with his second favorite dog…
a little Jack Russell named ‘Ricky Bobby’.
He is a basketball fanatic and LOVES little kids.
He has some pretty good skills with the ball…
Before leaving we had to say ‘hi’ to Max.
Gotta love donkeys :)
Thanks Kristi and Doug for a great time!
