    Awh!!! Very cute - I remember when my boys were that small - seems like eons ago.

    My younger son fell off his pony 20 times in one lesson when he was just training her - luckily he wasn't hurt but more determined to master the skill.

    They now event - here are some pics of them now at 16 and 19 respectively.

    So cute! My 7 year old had his pony trot off on him and he couldnt get her to stop. Scared him but he finally got her stopped. He wanted to get off right away but I made him stay on. He hasn't ridden since and says he's scared. Wish my big guy was as brave as your little one!

    Thanks for all the great comments guys!

    Stacie I hope your little one is able to work his nerves up again!

    The important part of that is did he get back on and was he all right? I am almost sure he was alright.

    Yeah he was fine! I little shook up, but okay. We caught him before he hit the ground hard. Just his little tush hit the ground!

    Stacie- Try a little reverse psychology on him (don't know if that's what it is called) or play on his soft side . My neice was about 1.5 yrs old and I put her up on my old mare for a little pony ride. Well she fell off. She was fine, but didn't want to get back on. Instead of forcing her or trying to talk her into it. I just said "Ahhh, poor Flame is sooo upset you fell off, poor girl." Before I knew if (literally like 20 seconds) she is hugging Flame and saying "poor Flame, I love you" etc, etc. Then she got right back on and rode around again. I was actually riding with her later that summer and the horse tripped & fell. We went down (I twisted her around so she didn't get hurt), but she got back on. I was so proud! No she is 4.5 and as brave as anything. The horse spooks/jumps a little bit and she doesn't freak out or anything. Its great I have someone to pass the riding on too. Sorry for the book.
