"Please, mommy, can I do a horsey ride, PLEASE??"
Buddy Bear exclaimed as we rode our bikes past the horse stables.
Isn't it wonderful to be able to say 'yes' to such a sweet request?
The stables at Sea Pines in Hilton Head are lovely. There are bores trail rides and riding lessons for guests 7 and up, and there is a petting zoo and pony rides for younger children. Buddy Bear couldn't believe it when I told him he could ride a pony.
"I get to ride a PONY! G-Bear, E-Bear, we get to go on a PONY ride!"
|Born ready for the pony ride...|
Fortunately for us, there were no bucking broncos at this stable, only gentle, reliable ponies.
Each of the kids got two laps around the petting zoo.
Next year, G-Bear will be old enough for a trail ride.
This year, the pony was still perfect for her.
Our little big man Buddy Bear was so pleased.
He waited so patiently for his turn and smiled the whole ride.
What a blessing to be able to say yes to such an eager request.
