Ribbon Day at Waikato Equestrian Centre

I think I know when it started.  It was May 2008 and we were on holiday in the Bay of Islands.  We looked around for things to do and Caro and I thought the horse trek sounded like a bit of fun.  The boys went off to do a quad bike thing and we set off on horseback.  When we got back two hours later I had a very sore butt and she had a new obsession...horses!!

Fast forward to today when we watched Caro competing in her first ever ribbon day at the Equestrian Centre.  There were some tense moments...

But this is the face of a kid who has just won her first ever ribbon at her first ever ribbon day...

We could NEVER have contemplated this dream coming true without my fabulous in-laws who have come to watch every lesson (not to mention paying for them) and taught us what we didn't know (which was SO much it is still mind-boggling).  This is Grandma today giving Caro a few tips...

A fabulous day full of proud mummy moments :-)
