First time riding horses!

We are lucky enough to be friends with some people with horses. Or should I say Lindsay is lucky enough. We finally went over to their house and rode them. This was Abbey and Lindsay's first time riding. They both loved it, but I think that Lindsay was the most excited. Jeff even got up and rode. He led them around the trail and I think the horse had had enough. It nipped at him and was snorting and panting pretty good on the last ride.

The two horses names were Gingersnap and Susette. It was interesting to see the different personalities that they both had. Ginger was a good horse for the kids, but you had to show her who was boss up front. Susette gets spooked a bit to easy, so adults usually ride her.

I'm sure we will be back to ride them soon. I so happy that my girls got to have this experience. I remember that I loved riding horses so much when I was younger. In fact, I wanted a horse instead of a car. Maybe some day we will have a horse too.

I love the second picture of Lou, with the little white dog following. It looks like a picture from a magazine.
And don't worry I plan to click.

That is so great. Steve has an aunt with horses who just invited the girls over to ride horses. They will love it too. The scenery in those pictures is amazing. By the way I would love to hear any updates on Jeff's job search.
