I am bragging about my 10 year old grandson, who has been taking riding lessons this summer. They had an exhibition for the parents and grandparents to show what they had learned. He won the trophy for his horsemanship knowledge. He competed against older kids when they were doing that part. His other award was showing that he completed Horsemanship I. He is going to continued to take lessons this fall. He demonstrated Western Pleasure, which he had a set pattern that he had to memorize. He really did a good job. His instructor has this palomino and Arabian that she gives lessons on and they are amazing how well they adapt to each of the students. There was 8 students all together.
We have found something that he really likes to do. They have homework just like school and it test their knowledge to how much they know about horses.
It was a very enjoyable evening ending with setting around a fire roasting marshmallows. His instructor only lives approximately 2 miles from them so they can be there in no time.
Have a great day.
