Horsing Around!

Today, Bob and I went to the grandkids summer camp for Parents’ Day! Julia is in Equestrian camp and Drew is Vaulting.

So, wow did this city gal learn so much! Julia taught me the difference between walking, trotting, and cantering. It was fun to watch the kids show the differences as they rode the horses. There’s more, too…like sitting up very straight, looking straight ahead, and keeping your heels down…oh, and smiling!

  
And I learned what vaulting is….it’s a bit like gymnastics on a horse, a darling big slow horse named Arthur. Here’s a photo of Drew doing a very impressive move. Yes! He’s standing on the horse as it trots! Granddad Bob and I had a great time!
