Life with horses and kids

Also titled our summer in photos

You hear a knock at the door.  Is this what you expect to see?  It is not out of your reality with kids and horses.

Can you ask for more than being champion of your division at your first show?

You hold your breath and suppress your panic when you see your kid and horse have a moment of miscommunication.  Then help your kid up make sure nothing is broken and tell them to get back on.  It takes nerves of steel.

Then there is this moment.

You watch them figure out life together.

And conquer fear with their partner.

Accomplish things they didn't even believe they could do.

Experience the rush that is cantering a horse through water.

There is just nothing like it.

What is life like with a bunch of kids and a bunch of horses?  Well there isn't much extra money, time or energy but there are tons of smiles, memories and happiness.  That first time you get your diagonal right, or the first jump or the next height.
  It is happiness multiplied!


  1. I can't wait until my little girl grows enough for a pony. I just want to hang out and play ponies with her all day!

  2. Wow that picture of her being launched out of the saddle is crazy! I'm glad she was okay. Your kids are so awesome. I'm glad you guys are having fun!


Steady and I love your feedback, so don't be shy!
