Not sure if I should make a new thread, or just update this one..
We saw our dad yesterday, and went bowling. It was fun, and there were a lot of cute boys.
Then when we got back to his house, we went horse riding! I got to ride a black horse, DJ. He is only 9, and is a lesson horse. I really like him, and hope I can ride him for my next lesson. The instructor said that we all kept our backs straight, which is good. I was surprised, because I usually slouch at home. We were riding western btw.
Afterwards, we untacked them, brushed them, and turned them out. Then my sisters and I went out and visited all of the horses. They have 12! But some are boarders' horses. One of their horses, John, is an ex race horse. He's for advanced riders, and competes in barrel racing with my dad.
Dad said that this summer we can compete in a small show that he holds at his place. Of course we won't be really good at it, but it should be fun.
I keep my excitement from my mom and gram though. I don't want them to know, so I don't talk about it. I guess with some time, they might be more accepting.
I'm very happy that I don't have to pay for anything, and I have one day a week with tons of horses. If I had to take lessons, it would be 1 hour a week and $40. Now I can save up for a car.
My sisters forgot their camera, so we didn't get any pictures. Next visit, I'll make sure they bring it. And I'll try to remember to bring my camcorder. A video is probably better anyways.
