Finding a New Passion

Who knew my girls were cowgirls in disguise?

My mother owns two horses, and lives in a carpenter home in the high desert of Southern California. My girls Morgan and Jai decided to go for a ride on Spirit the horse, and one of them has decided she would like lessons. Can you guess which one?

Ever the fashionista, Morgan was all set to ride. The weather was nice and warm, odd ~ or maybe since the experience was new for the girls, mother nature was kind.

 I laughed hysterically at this particular moment... Spirit took off and Morgan wasn't prepared.

Morgan is 16 years old~ My pride and joy (or at least one of them) I think Spirit may have been planning some quick moves here... notice her expression.

 Phil a neighbor on the block,  and "Lil T" (and believe me, there's nothing little about this horse) stopped by to join in with us.

Spirit and Lil T became fast friends (and Jai and Phil bonded over horses)

 Ever the quick-study, Jai became more confident... and Princess followed closely behind.

Jai is 12 years old, she is truly a Mama's Girl. She is an old soul.

Looks like someone is getting the hang of this.

Morgan doesn't like to quit (or be outdone by her younger sister) she decided to try to ride again...

And quickly discovered... Not interested in horseback riding.

She needed assistance getting Spirit out of the pin. Notice the facial expression on Morgan.

Jai will be getting lessons at the first of the year.

So fun!!! I'm glad Jai loved horseback riding! I love horse back riding!! I haven't been in a long time, I used to go all the time with my girlfriend her family owned a few horses :)

In no time Jai will be a Pro, the hardest part for me was always getting the saddle on tight enough.

Katrina~ I've never been on a horse. My father owned a couple when I was small but I never wanted to ride, I was more concerned with grooming the mane and tail LOL! Jai seems really interested.

Brandi, so am I! They loved it.

Mrs. Delightful- Thank you so much! I think they are beautiful and both are honor roll students; more importantly, they are kind and know the Lord.
