But aside from the trailer experience we had a great time. We took all 4 kids, Steady, Lego and Penny to ride at M's barn. Lily stayed home. We don't have enough saddles or trailer spots for everyone. So the two youngest took turns on Penny. Everyone got to jump and did great. Elaina is figuring out what it is like to ride a horse that knows his job and all you have to do is sit up, ride straight, know where you're going and stay out of his way. This is a whole new world to her. An awesome one which she will come to learn but it is new to her. She is so used to having to work really hard for everything. It can be hard when it is so easy. That seems like an oxymoron but it is true. Kelcie and Penny there are just no words. They are the cutest things to watch jump around. Even when the approach isn't perfect an Kelcie catches some good air. The K has some strange agreement with gravity and her laws. It only applies when she wants it too. Because even in those 2 feet of air between her and the saddle moments she always seems to meet it again like nothing ever happened. Sorry riding, Momming and instructing does not a videographer make. No media of the adorableness's.

Macy even got to jump a few jumps. She is still very green rider and new to jumping and Penny isn't the easiest to learn to jump on because she is a 'Hoppy' jumper. And Macy is quite big for Penny so they only jumped a few X's. But that was enough. Next time we'll take Lily and they can have more fun. Macy and Lily are really a matched pair. They have the same personality and even built the same. So I'll need to get some media of those two together. One thing that was over looked on social media, not at home, is that through all of the new horse excitement we have another really excited little girl around here because now that Elaina has Lego. Macy now has her very own Lily.
|That's one excited M!|
And last but not super exciting I did get to pop over a few jumps on Steady too! I couldn't do too much because I was instructing kids and wanted Monica to have her time to jump too. It's all fine though. I got to jump a little and
