Mae just started riding horses and she's never ridden a horse by herself - so far, the horses she's ridden have always been lead by someone else. Well, this weekend, she got her wish - Pilgrim took great care of her on her first solo, 2-hour ride in beautiful Campbell Valley Park. She was over the moon! Her mother, Melanie, invited her lifelong friend, Carol, along for the ride. Carol has ridden quite a bit but Melanie hadn't been on a horse since she and Carol went on a trail ride back when they were little kids. Freckles helped calm Melanie's worries (there was a reason she hadn't gone riding since she was a little girl - she admitted she's afraid of horses!) and Traveller was pleased to have a nice rider on him. Thanks, all! And good luck in your riding adventures, Mae - you're a quick learner and should do very well
Here's where we share photos and memories of some of our guests and the horses they get to call their own for an hour or two. Saddle up!
