Daddy stayed close by since we aren't completely confident in Skeeter's manners. ;-) Madisyn jumped on like an old pro. I guess riding a horse is kind of like riding a bike, you might get rusty but you don't completely forget. I'm pretty sure she has been trying to figure out a way to make it to lots of horse shows this year.
Ben wasn't much for horseback riding so he played in the sand pile instead. Any guesses what his clothes and boots did to the van when he got in? :-S
