Ponies, ponies, ponies!!!

We have been having so much fun since Miranda enrolled in Pony lessons!! This is another thing I love about homeschooling! I gathered a group of homeschoolers together and one morning a week we show up for Pony class. Each week they learn something new. The first class was all about Pony safety, and how to handle them. The second class went into how to groom a Pony, and they began to learn the proper terms of all the parts of a horse. I love the instructor! She always sends them home with homework, and she is full of enthusiasm for kids and ponies!

She has so many horses and ponies on her property. Here a momma horse had a newborn baby! This was so fun to see!

Well, not quite a pony, but a cute guy, nonetheless! She also has miniature horses, which are Miranda's favorite, and she has been able to ride them too!

Not a great photo, but this little one is a horse lover!!! She always gets her turn for a pony ride before we leave, and she is in heaven! She loves riding as much or more than Miranda!

Here's Miranda riding Dusty, one of the miniature horses. This week they learned to trot with their ponies and they were set free with them, what fun it was to watch as all the kids became more and more independent in their riding skills!

That looks like so much fun! Joy would absolutely love to take horseback riding lessons! And I love it when you find a teacher that is so passionate about what they're makes learning so much fun! Your girls look so happy on the ponies and look like they are having a fun time!

Have a great day!
