Wordless Wednesday!

English Riding Lessons

My daughters (1st and 3rd from the left) have been taking riding lessons for the past year or so.

My friend's daughter, Ava (2nd from left), and my niece, Allie (4th from left) had the opportunity to join them and take a half hour lesson yesterday. I think they really enjoyed themselves.

How cool!! I took riding lessons as a kid, but I didn't have those awesome hats (Mine were probably redneck riding lessons, lol!!).

I just love the looks on the girls faces as you watch each of them on their perspective ponies! Even the horses are adorable.

Thanks for sharing.
