So it didn't go quite as planned; BFG went limping again so we grabbed Toby and had three horses, lots of girls and about 65 family and friends watching the girls ride, eating hot dogs, making s'mores and touring the stables. The kids were excited about their shirts, some of them got to ride the show horse and Baihley hopped on Toby bareback to show the parents the finale. It was a bit windy, but we had the grill going, a little fire and everyone had a great time.
Jade riding Toby! She had him loping beautifully without any prior lessons. Cool..
Grace riding Charlie.
Alisha trotting Charlie to begin the day of showing parents and friends what they could do.
Sunday October 16th we will be having a fun fall show with the kids. 3 - 5 p.m. we will gather at the Stable. 3-4 will be a show, all the kids who can come will be riding and showing what they have been learning. There will be the baton race, egg and spoon, turning in a box, and the two that have ridden the longest will show the younger ones what they can look forward to with loping their horses. Pictures will follow. All the kids will get t-shirts too this year and we are excited about having them all together.
