My best friend Emily owns horses, and she works at a number of ranches, too, riding for boarders who can't make it out during the week, and giving lessons. Yesterday she let us come out and see the babies, and gave Lu his first horse ride! On the way out, he saw all the horses outside eating and couldn't contain himself, "Horsies, Mommy! Horsie Snack (eating)!"
He loved every minute of it once he got over the preliminary jitters. This was just after we had the horse trotting, which was very fast for Lukka! The X-Small helmet was obviously too small for even him, just being a bit over 2, but I think this boy is a natural!
