This little rider first showed up when we were at the Ag Expo in February. We had a couple of our ponies there and he sat on one.
Mom called about two weeks later to see about getting him a ride at the school. She has been taking him up on a horse with her and he likes it. She wants to keep him interested.
So, his trip to our place was for his first, independent horseback ride. He stayed up for about 2 rounds of the arena then wanted to get off Shorty. When mom asked if he was done, he said no, he wanted to lead the horse around.
You just never know what will interest the kids. By the way, this lad will be celebrating his third birthday in the near future.
