Horseback Riding at Riding Star Ranch

“A companionship with your child must be built. It does not just happen.” Eleanor Roosevelt

When the kids were little it was easy to plan family days. Swimming, the zoo, building sandcastles at the beach, even a trip to the park brought smiles and laughter. As Arielle and Kai got older it became more challenging to find activities we’d all enjoy. Even going to the movies usually meant boys in one theatre and girls in the other.

However, we all love horses and horseback riding. This past weekend Eric, Kai and I saddled up and went for a trail ride at Riding Star on horse edit

Here’s me and Happy which I think is a very appropriate name because horses have always made me very happy!

What a handsome fella!

The boys had their fun teasing me because I was taking more pictures of the animals than of them. Apparently on a trip to Vermont years ago I took a lot of pictures of cows. So when they saw…

Moo! They scooted out-of-the-way and let the star have his moment. Moo is really his name and he’s adorable.

Best Friends!

It was a peaceful Sunday afternoon. Just me and the boys while Arielle’s off at college. I’m still getting used to it. Just three instead of four. Being around horses definitely helps.

    What a fun way to spend the day with family. I haven’t ridden in ages. Moo appears to be the star, though!

      Hi Joanna! Yes, Moo was quite the character. I wanted to bring him home to meet Buddy.

    I was out there a few weeks ago and had so much fun. Looks like you did also.
