Thrills and spills
Anklebiter #1 (my daughter) has been in horse heaven all week at a wonderful place called Oak Wood Ranch.
She has ridden informally but never had lessons. Suddenly, there she was trotting and jumping by herself.
The riding camp ended with a show on the hottest day of the year.
Oscar took refuge in the stables.
The rest of us watched with anticipation as the riders twirled and jumped in the dust.
There were thrills – and some spills…
I immediately bonded with my daughter’s horse, Attila, because he proved that it is not only mothers who can be embarrassing! (Click the picture if you need to enlarge it.)
At the end, proud parents wiped away tears
And a child’s face lit up with the joy of accomplishment.
