Not long ago, we went to a summer camp with my girls in a corral full of gentle horses that were ready to take them on a horseback adventure.
As a Mom who was lucky enough to see this, let me tell you that it felt like something out of a dream.
My daughters, wide-eyed and thrilled, got introduced to their four-legged partners for the day.
I couldn’t help but admire their remarkable bond with them.
Now, you might be asking, “What’s so smart about horse riding?”
It’s much more than just a pony ride.
It’s a lesson in patience and responsibility.
My children gained a sense of responsibility from learning how to groom, saddle, and care for animals, which they carried over into their daily lives.
They had a better understanding of the value of being patient and receiving kind instruction, lessons that will be helpful to them in the future.
So, if you’re looking for wonderful ways to introduce your children to the beautiful world of horseback riding, consider the impact of books and toys.
