I didn't want to hijack Meggymoo's thread, but the pictures of her daughter riding were sooo cute, I wanted to share also.
This is my little sister Becca (now six) who lives next door to us on our shared farm.
This is her 19 year old gelding Chino. She rides him most of the time bareback, because she can then get him ready with little or no help. Most days she can bridle him (unless he is being uncooperative :) ).
Anyone else with cute kiddo photos, feel free to share.
