That was a great story to read! I too, got a little teary eyed reading it. I am a Mom of a 10 yr old lilttle girl as well. When we decided to buy a kid friendly horse for her about 2 yrs ago it was the most exciting time...not just for her but for me too! I hope your daughter has a blast with her!

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

It so nice to be able to share such a wonderful moment in our lives with people who are so caring and can relate. Thank you all so much. We all got teary eyed too, just watching her. I am going to have my daughter read this thread so she can read all your well wishes herself. I think she will enjoy knowing that so many people are excited for her and are rooting for her and her new horse. I did manage to take one lousy pic today and I'm gonna share it just because it will give you an idea and I know I always want to see everyones horses. Tomorrow we are gonna spend the day at the barn and I will get lots of good pics that I will share. In the mean time...here's the lousy one:
OOPS didn't mean to post the same pic twice

She's gorgeous.

It is so wonderful that your daughter has so many people in her life able to support her dreams and passions . Those trainers sound like keepers .

Hope was a little stinker today. She decided instead of walking around the arena that she wanted to trot. Silly girl. So my daughter made her walk until she was sure that Hope knew it was her idea to trot...trotted her a few times around the ring, then back to walking. She really is a spunky little girl. She also decided instead of riding out in the field that she wanted to go play with the other horses...so she and my daughter had to work out that little argument...my daughter won . They ended the ride with a better relationship and mutual respect. A great day at the barn I'd say. As promised, here are the pics from today:

I love the smile on her face (and the helmet).

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
