|My daughter meeting the adorable Buttons for the first time - perfect little pony!|
We do have horses right in our back yard, but none are kid safe yet. Our pony Silver needs some more work. So this would be their first time taking the reins and not being led around.
|My son's trusty mount, Kojo|
My son was right in there with a huge smile and ready to go. My daughter was a bit more cautious about the whole thing.
After a bit of instruction on how to turn, stop, back up and of course how to do an emergency stop, they were off to wander as best they could!
My daughter had a bit of a hard time getting the whole steering thing down. Patient little buttons just calmly plodded around and sometimes listened to my little girl's confusing signals.
By the end, my son was really figuring things out and mostly taking his horse where he was hoping to go.
You don't even know how happy this makes me! I want to be a good mom and support them in their interests, what ever that may be and not push them into anything they don't like (but I really, really want them to get the riding bug!!)
