We tried out a new ranch today for riding lessons (our old one is moving a little too far north), and this one gave the girls a choice of wearing their bike helmets or borrowing student helmets. You already knew what the girls chose for today, right?***
They liked checking out all the new horses before their lessons. There was even a baby, only one-year old. Cute.
The girls are VERY serious about their horseback riding:
We liked that this new riding ring was covered. Oh man, such a treat on a blazing hot day.
I think this might be my new fave pic of the girls. They sure had fun today:
This was their third lesson, and their confidence on the horses grows each time. I’m not sure I was so brave at their age. The blue sparkle boots worked quite well, by the way. And the two young cowgirls working at the ranch were just captivated by Ro and Ree’s wild outfits. I guess they do stand out a bit in the standard blue-jean and brown-leather-boot crowd.
***So, a few big questions for horse lovers: do you have a fave brand of riding helmet? And which type, because it seems like there are a whole bunch of types of each brand. And do you have any sizing recommendations for little kids? And do you recommend getting a fixed helmet size or getting an adjustable one since the girls are growing? Oh man, we looked at riding helmets online a few weeks ago (no nearby stores carry them) and my head was spinning. Thanks in advance!
