Last week Prophet and D.K. went to horseback riding camp. Each child had one horse for the entire week. Well, D.K. started with another horse on Monday, but he wouldn't cooperate with anyone, so after stepping on D.K.'s foot twice in one day, he was sidelined for the week. Each child had to share their horse with one other child for the week. They were taught how to muck out the stalls, take care of the tack, proper arena technique for shows, riding posture, etc. They loved it and they are missing "their" horses alot. I found Prophet staring at the picture of him and "his" horse Donut all teary eyed at bedtime. For his birthday in two weeks, he's asking for money so he can go back out to the stables and ride. The last day, they did a demo for the parents of everything they had learned during the week. Here's some of the pics we took!
This is Prophet leading "his" horse Donut around the arena. I know it's blurry, but I wanted you to see what this mama saw looking at her "little boy" with that magnificent animal following his lead. It was one of those moments when I once again wanted to find those doctors and say "look at him, this is that tiny baby that you told us may never walk, feed himself, talk ...look what he can do." My heart sings when I watch him do something like this!
