Both my children have been taking riding lessons through the 4-H program here on Mackinac and they love it.
I love that they are not just learning how to ride but how to take care of a horse as well. Horses are more than just riding - they're a lot of work!
My son loves riding the horse,
but my daughter loves telling the horse what she wants it to do.
Luckily Blaze is the prefect little horse for them to learn on, and their teacher, Leanne, has been fantastic. Riding has been one of the best parts of our summer. Sadly, tomorrow will be their last lesson. But Blaze will be on the island all winter, so I am fairly certain we'll stop by the barn occasionally with a carrot or two...
