My Little Cowgirl

April 6, 2013

We had some fantastic early spring weather here at the ranch and we spent every moment we could outside soaking in that vitamin D. The April showers have since arrived, but I thought I would share with you one of Emily's favorite activities during those warm, sunny days. I have to say I am pretty proud of my little three year old cowgirl. She rode my good ol' boy, JR, and one of the ranch horses, Honey, all by her self. She was very confident in her ability to ride her horse all by herself. "Mama, will you leave the arena? I want to do it all by myself!" She learned how to steer and kick to make the horse go forward. She trotted like her uncle Isaac (complete with an attempt to post) and announced that she wanted "to lope like my aunt Libby!" No, I didn't let her lope. I am looking forward to the time we will spend together with our horses this summer!
