I went over to watch Liliana ride Bella in a little play day. It was for the kids, and was slow-paced with no emphasis on competition; just fun.
I’m pleased to report that Bella behaved beautifully, standing around with the big horses without fuss. I think she was the only pony there.
Many of the classes were leadline. It wasn’t easy on parents, trotting around the course while leading their small children.
Sarah led this little girl. They had to wind through a line of barrels, then around two poles at the far end of the course.
It seemed like a very long way.
The smiles on the kids’ faces made it worth it.
Liliana was old enough to go on her own, and Bella trotted politely around the barrels.
Unfortunately, she did stop dead at one point to poop. They’ll have to work on that. Except for that, though, they were both perfect ladies.
And a good time was had by all.
