My World no 6

At Maison Tranquille we have a little horse family that I have shown you three of before. Now I will show you the top mare, Mobilia and her daughter Shamona.  Vanessa, my grand daugther has been riding since she was very little. Here she is nearly 10 years. Being 10 years doesn’t make you tall enough for an Arabian horse, so it’s easier if you can find a plateau to mount from. Sometimes it’s good to just be stubborn or you’ll miss out of the fun. This place look good so Vanessa try the first time. Shamona is eating and doesn’t really care about what’s going on.

Every cat we have had is following the theater and attending the walks if they can,

No, this spot wasn’t high enough, off for the second try,

This is much better, steady Shamona,

Stay still Shamona,

Third try, the other way around. It’s ok to mount a horse from both sides, you just have to train the horse that things like that happens. Steady now,

did you see that Mamie?

and her mother on Mobilia. Mobilia used to were shoes, wear a bridle and a saddle in her youth. Now she is very content wearing non of the above.    A real natural life.

These are so cute. I remember learning to ride many years ago. It's many years since I have ridden a horse, I think I would fall now.

What wonderful photos, I loved the series of your granddaughter getting on her horse. We have 3 horses, and I hope to ride again this summer... it has been 30 years, but I am ready! :-)

She finally got it right! It's not easy, especially not when the horse takes a step away and leaves you with... nothing! :-D I used to ride a sultan's horse bareback and we were fine, unless I smelled off another horse. If that was the case, he refused to let me ride bareback and would promptly take a step to the side. Every time. Until I washed my hands and came back with new clothes, untainted by another stallion!
