We always start off with good intent.
"Let's do something new this weekend! My friend does equestrian stuff, let's take the girls to go watch," Matt said.
The day was beautiful, the weather perfect.
What we fell a little short on though was behavior. Oh my goodness are we going through a phase. And apparently, horses don't like phases. Who knew? I thought we would be outside in a big grassy field with lots of sunshine and fresh air and space for the girls to exhaust themselves.
The folks who participate in these things though had other ideas. No loud noises, no sudden moves, nothing that might spook a tense horse and its owner...... Which, in hindsight makes sense, but at the time. Ugh. It was not quite the day we'd had in mind.
On the other hand, now we an say that we've been.
And in a few more years, it would be a lovely afternoon.
Except for when the girls start asking about horse back riding lessons.
