|Grandma and Kate taking a turn on Stoney
My mom came out for a vacation last week (I should probably say “vacation” since I didn’t wash a single dish and rarely changed a diaper while she was here) and between a busy schedule of birthday parties, check ups, dental cleanings, the museum, zoo and hours at the local yarn shop, we also fit in a ride on Stoney.
Every time I slide into the saddle, I am reminded of dreams of Olympic grandeur but those remain tucked away for the future once my children are grown.
Really though, what I always wanted was to be able to teach my own children to ride Stoney the way he taught me to ride. He was a little more flighty and naughty in his youth and has settled down perfectly. He’s content now being the old gelding who totes kids around.
