Get 'em hooked young!

Just wanted to share a few pictures. My niece (who is just over 2 1/2 years old) came out yesterday for a horsey ride! She just thought it was the greatest thing, and just wanted to keep going! And Red was just the perfect gentleman.

I love this picture because of Red's expression, LOL, but she wanted to go again, and grabbed the "reins" because she was ready to go. Mommy and Daddy took her to buy some real cowboy boots after that, because she had to have boots like Auntie.

I don't think her mom and dad realize what a monster they are creating, haha. Just wait until she asks for a pony!!
smrobs, boots, EliRose and 2 others like this.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

I went to the Crabbet celebration show yesterday. Thing that got me was I saw 2 young people. All the other people I saw showing were old and grey.

She's adorable! Yes, hook them young. She'll be askin for a pony for her birthday in no time :)

My parents probably regret the first trail ride they took me on at 4. I sure don't ;)
