First Horse Show
I'd be a really bad mom if I didn't post this photo of Emma on the day of her first horse show on October 1st. She actually won 2 ribbons but I took this before we got the second ribbon. She really rode well, and I thought she should have taken a ribbon in every class, but then, I'm her mom. Her instructor was really proud of her in her very first competition. One sad note, her pony, Mighty Mouse, was sold last week. The good news is that Emma loves the new horse she's riding--a brown and white paint mare named Cricket. We hope her riding progresses as fast on this new mount as it did on The Mouse. I hope to get a picture of Cricket and Emma in action at her next lesson.
