Haven has had two horse riding lessons so far. She is taking lessons at Shining Hope Farms, where I used to work, with Ms. Madison. We wanted her to get used to being around a big animal and get a taste for what riding horses is all about to see if she is interested.
I have noticed that all of the girls around the farm are very responsible and personable. They also don't seem near as concerned about looks or boys. Horseback riding seems to give them lots of confidence.

Walk on, Fritz!
Jovie was cheering for her!
She had a fun ride! We will see if she wants to keep it up.
