Four Happy Faces

Yet another wonderously warm March day!  Christine & I took her kids Abigail & Carter out for a trail ride.  Abigail rode Cricket (and begged to go Western, even though the stirrups can't be shortened enough for her) and Carter rode the pony Mo. The kids groomed their own horses, but tacking & untacking fell to us "big kids" who can reach their backs and lift & carry the saddles.  Both kids did a great job piloting their mounts through the snow with smiles on their faces.  Even the horses were smiling, I think!
Abigail & Cricket

Carter & Mo

Abigail in the lead, with Christine & Carter hot on her heels

You can almost see all her missing teeth that grin is so wide!

Carter's big grin

Abigail & Cricket bringing up the rear - their favorite place to be

Rhio didn't much care for being made to hang back & go slow, but he did it. 

Just a little trotting to catch up
