horse camp

Big Sis attended a 4-H Beginner Riders' Horse Camp this week. She had a great time and now she REALLY wants to take riding lessons.

On the last day I wanted to take some pictures of Big Sis on a horse. L'il Sis wanted in on the act. And she had no fear. When I stopped her from climbing through a fence into a paddock, her response was, "But, Mo-om...." She was determined to pet Savannah. Look what a stretch it was for her to pet the mare's nose!

Then she insisted she wanted to ride the horse. The instructor was nice enough to let her have the first ride. Then, L'il Sis wanted more and couldn't understand why she wasn't getting another turn. Hm, maybe because you aren't even supposed to be here!

Then I managed to get some pictures of Big Sis on the thoroughbred. After all, that's what I was trying to do in the first place!

How cute! After Daughter of Mine fell off a horse at a birthday party, she's never really wanted to try again. Of course, I haven't given her a lot of opportunity. Your girls are so brave!

Brave and coronary-inducing. I'm sure there's a good reason for the amount of grey hair I have, considering I'm not THAT old.

How awesome that yours weren't afraid. We actually own racehorces and took the kids down to see them a couple of weeks ago. Brayden was loving all over the horses; Baylee was terrified. Maybe she'll grow out of her fear of things.

The irony is that L'il Sis is still terrified of my sister's little Shi Tzu puppy but the huge horse (relative to her especially) didn't faze her a bit.
