Another First: Horseback Riding

I'm so behind on my blogging that not only did I miss recording Declan's first horseback riding experience, I missed the second one too.  So here they are:

#1- At the Wildwood Harvest Fest, he rode a big black horse named Shaq, and that's all I have to say about that.   Shaq was so massive, Declan had to do veritable splits to stay astride.    He wasn't scared at all though, which is a long way from his terror-inducing pony stand from last fall.
He was so darn pleased with himself.

#2 - A week later we found ourselves at the Rendezvous festival at Pinnacle Mountain, and Declan went on a real trail ride with the guide, on the back of a pinto named Cisco.  He liked this too.
