A picture is worth a thousand words

From Sunday.

Mireya, in the car, on the way home:
"You know, in a few weeks
I'll be back to riding the way
I was before I fell off."

One month ago she wouldn't even PET a horse.

I'm so proud of her.

Sierra and me (Lovely squint, aye? and where is my helmet?)

Daddy and Mireya with some shadow play.

Lots to update, but there are presents to wrap and send off north. So hopefully, tomorrow!

Good for her. What a brave, tough cowgirl she is.

It took me months before I could even pet Baby Doll after the second time she injured me. And it'll be a year soon since I've ridden. Maybe Mireya can teach me a few things about courage.

Very good for her! Kids are great about just getting over stuff like that - she may have a future with horses in it!

Wonderful! Nice she had a plan to get back on and followed through

What a sweet little girl! Sounds like she's very mature. I'm so glad that she's getting over her fear - horses are wonderful animals and it would be a shame for her to harbor a fear of them from this point forward.

What'd I tell ya? Kids are so resilient, but some never do get back on, and those are the adults who never got back on and discovered the joys of riding. How marvelous that she is back in the saddle! Hooray! I'm sure you felt exactly like I did when Miles rode Shorty last November! :)

Honestly, it's good to see anyone riding this time of year, none-the-less Mireya. It seems like so many of us bloggers have been blocked from riding by snow. Good to see your family taking advantage of your good weather.
