My seven year old son rode from the moment he could sit because I kept on putting him on ponies
He came off lead rein before he started school, joined Pony Club, came hunting with me, did the mounted games competitions with PC.......... but he never really wanted to do it! Just 'put up with it'. Then this summer he finally put his foot down and declared that he doesn't like riding.
Oh well! Children come out of the womb with their own personalities and there's sod all we can do about it - you can lead a horse to water.....
Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
