Horsing around


Hollings with her horse.
6 months


We finally got BellaRose on a horse! She rode a sweet little pony named Bella. I got to ride too which did my heart good. It has been probably 2 years since I have been on a horse. Just like riding a bike, you never forget.
I was so proud of BellaRose. She sat so tall, her leg position was perfect, and she picked up the reins properly. She is honestly a natural. We were not even sure she would get on, but she stayed on the whole time I rode. I think our favorite part was her blond little ponytail sticking out of the helmet.
Can you believe we only had Worth's cell phone to document the ride!

She's a natural... it's in her blood! She's so stinkin' cute in her gear, oh my word.

Rylie likes to ride, too... good friends of ours have a horse right down the road that Curt has ridden since he was a kid. I need to get her in some lessons for the winter. They say it's really helpful for kids with speech issues. Wish you were here to go riding with us! I'll never forget you and Stacy giving me jumping lessons that summer at camp!

Wow - BellaRose looks so grown up sitting on that horse. She looks like such a little lady! What a fun thing for y'all to do together!

That is so cool! I can't wait until Leah gets a chance to ride one day, but I don't know when that will happen. I'm so glad you got a chance to ride too. Very jealous!

I am reminded of when you found out you were pregnant with BellaRose and you found out it wasn't a good idea to ride anymore, You were so sad how much your life was going to change.
I love seeing all of that change come to fruition in your life. Seems so much sweeter now that you can share it with your sweet girl! So happy for you my friend:)
