Horse riding lesson for Caroline - 3 years old

Caroline and I drive by some horses every time I bring her to my house.  I slow down and we count the horses we see and lately she has been telling me that she wants to see the horses.  

This brought back so many memories of my young life in Cuba and my love for horses! I wanted to share it with her.

So, last week I called the number on the sign at the entrance, and set up for a lesson, not knowing how she would do.  She is scared of bugs and dogs.  She likes ladybugs though.

Brittany from TNT Dynamite Stables here in Cumming started the hour lesson with having Caroline get a caddy with brushes and then help with Jesse's grooming:

Ready to ride!
Here is a video of her trotting!

As you can tell, she loved her horse Jesse!
Hugging her goodbye!

  1. Oh My!!! What a gift you gave her grandma!!! This may become one of her earliest memories that she keeps forever (as it has been for you!) It is such a multi-sensory experience and emotional too! I'm sure it increased her sense of herself being so capable - I can DO this, groom and ride this BIG animal - and to discover that she was not afraid, but loved riding and Jesse! You must have had a good teacher too. Thank you for the wonderful pictures and descriptions to help us feel the thrill for both of you! And even the video trotting!! Thank you for sharing! Yeah Caroline and Bea!!! Love, Tere
