This Easter I had the privilege to give three beautiful girls their first horseback riding lesson.  For two of them it was a complete surprise. You should have seen the look on their faces when they got to the farm and were told they get to have a lesson on a pony.  Then the elation turned to nervousness, when they realized their sized compared to the “giant beast” they were going to spend the next hour or so with.  After a few walks around and some confidence building we go back to the lesson.  Here at the farm the lesson starts with the moment you step through the gate. So the girls learn about cleaning and tacking a horse before they even got on.  It was a great day and a true joy to share the farm and the horses with them.
