Horseback Riding with Grandma and Grandpa!

Grandma and Grandpa Farnsworth recently came to visit us. Elliot recently had a really fun time posing on a pony and Kendra is in a huge pony loving stage, so they arranged for some horseback riding for the kids.

There was a cute little dog there, which Kendra and Elliot took an immediate shine to

They had Elliot and Kendra wear these sweet helmets, even though the horses were very tame and laid-back

Elliot and Kendra started out by holding the horses and getting ready to lead them by themselves.  Elliot's horse was named "Gamble" and hew as a very calm, although somewhat larger horse.

Kendra was very happy to ride Skylar.  Skylar was smaller, but a more eager horse, and a faster walker!

Then on to the riding!  They tell us that Kendra rides in more of an English style

And Elliot more of a western style.

They also got to help take off the horses' equipment

Overall a super fun day!  Thanks so much to Grandma and Grandpa Farnsworth!
