Nathan took his very first ride on a horse last weekend at camp!
He was apprehensive when the handler tried to put him on, so I decided to give it a try, and he saddled up no problem. When they tried to put the riding cap on, he wanted no part of it, which was fine because there were two women walking with him the entire time.
He took two spins around the sports field, which gave me amble time to get a few good pictures and to let him really enjoy this experience. As you'll see by the pictures he was laughing, not holding on, and waving to his mommy and cousin's Alphonze, Anthony and Michael.
I've been attempting to enroll Nathan in hippotherapy sessions (therapy on horseback), and was a bit concerned about how he'd handle riding a horse. Not anymore! I'm also secretly excited because I love horseback riding and hope it becomes another fun part of our summer adventures as Nathan grows up.
