Working with Horses

The kids, as you well know, have been hanging out volunteering at Hamilton Hobby Farm and its the highlight of their time here on Vancouver Island.  Every opportunity they have to volunteer they are anxious to give of their time and energy.

Chris and Shelly have huge hearts, giving of time, enthusiasm, instruction, and freezies.  They even offered to give some of our kids horse lessons, both on the ground and in the saddle.  So yesterday was the day to start.

Shelly gives signals to the 'horse' Maret for her to get the idea of how the horse will receive messages down the ropes.
