Connor had his 1st riding lesson this Sunday at Harmony Horse Training.
Connor rode "Epona," AKA "Pony". She is a 13.2hh, 12-year-old Welsh Pony mare with the ability to jump 4ft, one of the barn's best jumpers, despite being the smallest.
She is also the character of the barn, always making people laugh and she loves to eat everything in sight.
Good-hearted and full of energy, she's very fun to ride. Connor LOVED her. He was a confident & calm rider. We were all so impressed. He loved it so much we will continue with lessons here. Here is the little cowboy in action.
First they go get the horse from the barn.
Here he is carrying the grooming bucket. It looks heavy.
Then Mia showed him how to groom his Pony. Mia was so good at teaching Connor about safety and grooming. BTW The training facility had an amazing view.
He cleaned the hooves,
painted the hooves,
and collected the gear.
All ready to go.
Taking Pony to the arena.
And he's riding.
Just riding by himself like a little pro.
Jessie loved the horses too. She was not even scared of this huge animal right up in her face. She patted his nose and put her hand right in her mouth.
My little horsey girl.
We are all looking forward to coming back soon.
