Charlotte's 1st Pony Ride

This one's for the grandparents, who can't get enough stores about their grandkids!

While Sam's away visiting his grandparents in Texas, we are focused on spending special time with Charlotte. I've had the idea to take her for a pony ride since she was born! There is just something special about little kids and ponies! But I wanted to make sure she was the right age to really love the idea and enjoy the experience. Some kids are scared of big animals so I really wanted the timing to be perfect.

We started the day by showing her pictures of ponies on the internet and she fell in love with the idea of seeing ponies.

She picked our her favorite Princess dress and we added the cowgirl hat!


Cowgirl hat traded for proper helmet. AWESOME! We see ponies nearby!

Here she is! My 3 year old, on the smallest pony in the field!


Mama runs around the fence to take a better shot!


Very special day with our first daughter.

Adorable! Love the cowgirl hat :) How special to spend one-on-one time with your daughter.

And you are correct in saying that timing is important. My 4-year-old still doesn't like the idea of getting on a pony/horse. However, my 2 1/2 year old loves it! There were ponies & horses at a recent Halloween Fair, and we couldn't get him off the ponies!

Hi Caterina, I think some kids are just scared of horses and others are not. We had no idea how Charlotte would react but wanted to wait until she was 3. It helped to look at pictures of ponies before we left. Best of luck to you with the older child!
