Olivia has been participating in horseback riding for about 6 years now and it has been so wonderful for her. It has improved her balance, her core muscles, her confidence, everything. I don’t like to watch because I don’t like to see my 55-pound little angel on that giant animal, letting go of the reigns and flapping her hands in excitement. It freaks me out. But I do try to go every now and again because, even though it scares me, it’s amazing to see. She has no fear and loves to ride bareback and trot. Crazy, right? She’s even started to learn how to “steer” which is the next step so she can compete in shows. Just like with everything else, just give her time and she’ll get there.
Ride, baby, ride!
