Makes My Monday: Mare-y Miss

After her year as a "Little Tiger," tae kwon do lost its allure.

Parent-proffered suggestions a'plenty followed: Dance classes? No. Gymnastics? No.
Art classes? Well, I can do that on my own...

Then, the book fair. Sarah's selection? Me and My Pony. She read it cover to cover. She took the tests at the conclusion of each chapter. She asked for a pony. In the denial of that request, she asked for horseback riding lessons. That, we can do.

Seeing Sarah in the saddle Makes My Monday!

wow! How fun!! Our flower girl from our wedding loved horses and her mom got her lessons when she was about Sarah's age...and still rides!

Tracy said...

Wonderful!!!

Some of my favorite memories as a child/teenager involve horses. I'm so happy she's trying it out.

Horse back riding is so great. She looks very good on the horse good for her! Thanks for hosting MMM! Have a great Monday.

She looks right at home! So may of my former students were involved with horses (not in relationships, but you know what I mean!) and they loved it. It gets them outside and with a beautiful animal...great activity!

Amanda said...

Every little girl that I've known that's had horseback riding lessons has loved it! I'm so glad Sarah found another activity that she enjoys!

Nothing beats horseback riding. Hope she learns about care and cleaning as well - makes it even more fun.

Good for you for providing her with the opportunity.

Nancy said...

OH! Look at that smile :) Looks like a big hit.

I see myself in that little girl. I took riding lessons for a year. Loved it, but it got pretty expensive (cities, you know) so I had to find something else to do.
