Birthday Dreams....

My girl's birthday went really well. It was so much fun to watch her do something she had really hoped to do.

The birthday celebration began when we arrived at her preschool with cupcakes that she helped me bake and decorate. (Strawberry with white icing and sprinkles!) Her teacher put a birthday crown on her head and she sat at the head of the table with a cupcake full of her 5 candles. She blew out her candles and beamed.

After school and a quick bite to eat, we changed clothes and took off to the horse farm for a ride on a horse!

Miss Sara took our girl to the back pasture to catch "Seymour".

After brushing the horse with 3(!) different brushes, they put on the reigns, the bit and bridle, then the blanket and the saddle.

After finding a helmet that was just her size, then she took a ride around the ring.

She sat so tall and proud in the saddle!

When she was finished, she had to lead her horse back into the barn.

I think I had as much fun as she did! I loved being able to make at least one of her dreams come true!

It just looks like a great experience for all three of you. The decision you'll have to make will be whether she wants to ride Western or English!

So glad you all enjoyed yourselves so much. You really captured the magic in your girl's experience.
