Maddie's 1st Pony Ride

Friday we went to an equestrian center in northern Long Beach. Candy was off work so she went with us and had told us about it in the first place. Maddie loves to hang with Candy whenever possible!

This place had pony rides, petting zoo, stables for many horses, and a larger horse riding ring. Maddie loves horsies so she really enjoyed it. It was pretty hot, 102 degrees, but a "dry heat." Maddie was a little concerned when put on the pony, but when they got going, she loved it. She rode twice and the second time, when the man unbuckled her and took her off the pony, she said, "Ta-da!" He got a big kick out of that!

Another one of the ponies. They took breaks and got water. It really wasn't that bad in the shade.

Ah, my favorite, SHEEPIES!!!!

Maddie in the petting zoo area. They had a lot of goats, a pig, a miniature horse, chickens, lots of brightly colored birds, and bunnies.

This horse got a shower to cool off. He seemed to really enjoy it!

Last but not least, a little video of Maddie's 1st pony ride!

Talk to you soon!!!
