Little girls and ponies. They just go together. Ladies, wasn't there some time in your early girlhood when you really, really, really wanted a pony? Yeah, me too.
When we recently returned to riding lessons (because basketball season was over and we decided not to do track), we got a chance to ride Scoobie the Pony.
Here is Mae with Scoobie...
And here is Abigail. As you can see, Scoobie is a fairly small pony.
The girls also got a chance to use the lunge line. Even with all the horsie things I did in my youth, I never did this! It was really cool. This is Jane...a beautiful horse. Jane got a terrible rattlesnake bite last year, but she is much better now.
Scoobie got into the action, too!
Look at the little guy go!
Cool down time.
Thanks, Scoobie. That was a lot of fun!
Now I'm really starting to think...where can we put a pony pen at our house?
I guess I never really grew out of the pony phase!
