I was so proud of Soda yesterday. We had the fam out for Easter and I told the kiddies I'd take them out for some poneh rides. Flame is pretty much out the picture now due to her continued falling, so the duty was going to fall to Soda. Of course, all my cousins wanted to ride too and my aunt. I was a little worried, but he took it all in stride like the champ he is.

Yes, I know everyone should have helmets/boots/etc on, but they didn't and no one got killed. I wish I had the rest of the pics, but these will have to do. Ended up doing a triple ride to get my 2 yr old 2nd cousin on the horse, he's been too scared to get on yet.


Just got up in the pasture.

Asking Daniel if he's ready to go solo, wants to get off, or keep riding with Ash. He wasn't quite ready for a solo ride but didn't want to get off.

Took a couple circuits around the pasture like this. My one cousin kept offering him grass, even though I wanted her behind me to steady the kiddies if they needed it.

Finally up by himself and loving it. Kept saying "giddyup" and "yeehaw" it was pretty darn cute.

This is just funny cuz just about all of us look like idiots. No, he isn't biting at my hand. I'm scratching his lip which he absolutely loves. Comes over for lip scratches in the paddock all the time... weird horse. :lol:

My camera died at this point so I don't have the pics of the other kiddies riding by themselves, but everyone had a great time. My older cousins got on and tooled around a little bit. I was really wishing for them to have proper riding gear and more time so I could give them some more pointers. But everyone had a good time and was suitably impressed with my boy.

Thanks guys, it was a great time. I do love getting the little ones on for a ride and Soda is soooo patient and careful with them. If he feels them unbalanced he slows down or stops, it's so cute!

Luvmyperch - See if you can get another kid on first and then ask him if he wants up too. That's what finally got Daniel. He'll be 3 in July and we've been trying to get him on the horse for a little over a year and he's been scared everytime.

Your Soda has such a kind eye. Looks like he took this "duty" with great care and consideration for the wee ones on him. Also, looks like everyone had a grand time!

Thanks for sharing the pics, they are wonderful.
