Family Time with Horses
One of the things my mother has instilled in my children is her love for horses. We had a few horses during my high school years (but I was more interested in boys and makeup), and my parents' house now backs up to a horse barn, so the girls get to visit and feed them at every visit.
A couple weekends ago she signed us up for Family Time with Horses, put on by their local community college. All 4 of us worked together grooming the horses,
learning some of the riding basics,
and yes, mucking the stalls!!
It was such a great program for the girls, because it didn't just let them do the fun part - - they had to do the harder (ickier) parts, too. If you live near Heartland Community College, I highly recommend this class!
