Today we invited by a fellow mom of multiples to go horseback riding. I've been setting this up for months hoping to get Kaitlyn on the back of a horse. I have loved horses since I was little but never actually get a chance to go. I have been excited about this for weeks :)
And the great news? Kaitlyn loved it! Yea! I'm so happy. Mommy and Daddy loved it too. Caleb did okay and the triplets had a mixed reaction. None of them got on a horse but Julianna wanted to - Alyssa and Rachel wouldn't come anywhere near it! Oh well, I can break them in slowly.
Meeting the horses:
Giving the horses a treat:
As close as Rachel and Alyssa got to wanting to ride - they just liked the helmet :)
Julianna was much more interested but we didn't try putting her on - maybe next time at least for a picture!
Kaitlyn's on the back of her first horse! She's riding Whiskey:
Kirk with Caleb on Tuff - we figured we'd start Caleb out with someone and not by himself:
And me on the back of Bob - Bob is the slow horse :)
Thankfully we had some help with the triplets so we could all go riding together!
Our family (at least the bigger 4):
Caleb's trying it alone.
Kaitlyn was doing great! She really loved Whiskey - rode him for 2 hours!
Her smile says it all! Priceless :)
Kirk and Caleb on Bob (Bob had the more comfy saddle):
Riding as a group down by the pond. Now I'm on Tuff - I think he was everyone's favorite since he was stubborn but responded better to commands.
After the kids were done Kirk took Whiskey and I took Tuff and we rode for another hour. Love it :) Can't wait to go again. Thanks so much Michelle and Sean!
