Raven's Riding Lesson

Raven's riding lesson

My friend Raven takes horse riding lessons! This is Raven with her horse, Misty. Isn't she lucky? There are stables in NYC, but my parents say ballet is enough for me. I would love to try riding a horse someday though. Raven was kind enough to let me and our friend Summer visit her stable so that we could watch Raven ride and take photos.

Isn't Raven a good rider? Summer was telling me that she'd really like to start horse riding lessons someday too. Raven and Summer were teasing me because the only horses I'm familiar with are New York Police Department horses and the carriage horses in Central Park! (By the way, you should not take a carriage ride if you come to NYC, the horses aren't treated very well and the city roads are very bad for their feet.)

After a while, Summer and I started climbing on all the little wooden structures behind the barn. We were really happy to get the chance to see each other again. However, since I was going back to New York a few days later, we didn't know when we'd get to spend time together again. It's so nice to spend time with friends!

Raven's riding lesson

Raven had ridden her bike to the stable and she let me try it. I had to use training wheels! Summer was laughing and laughing. NYC kids don't really ride bikes that much! If anything, we carry around our razor scooters and scoot from place to place. I was a bit embarrassed, but I still had fun! It was a fun afternoon, but I was really sad it was my last one with my Arizona friends for a while. How do you like to cheer up when you are feeling sad about missing a friend?

  1. Salut, Inky!
    Yeah, riding bikes is the best! My mom always gets mad at me when I ride my bike around the city; I'm supposed to take it to the park and ride there. My dad doesn't really mind because he used to do the same thing when he was little.
    I'm embarrassed to say this, but I'm scared of horses. Sandrine rode a horse before when we visited my aunt and uncle who live in the countryside.
    When I miss a friend, I just listen to happy music. Music always makes things better for me. I also enjoy watching comedy films, too. I particularly enjoy watching the ones that Lilly likes.
    Bisous,
    Sabine

    PS: Will you have any Nutcracker posts up soon? Sandrine and Aurélie just performed in their studio's version of the Nutcracker, and they want to see photos of your performance. They danced the same roll but on different nights, so I had to see the show twice. My brother felt bad for me. I don't blame him. I have a hard time sitting still for those kinds of things; I just wanted to see my best friend dance and well, my sister because I kind-of had to...

    1. Hi Sabine!
      It's okay to be scared of horses- they make me a bit nervous too. Violet would really like to take a lesson and I think I might take her up on it because I'd like to get over my fear.

      I have a Nutcracker post up now! I'm sorry you had to go twice. I would love to see the Nutcracker twice, but I am a big ballet fan. ;)

      Love,
      Inky

  2. We would be lost around here if we did not have our horses, that is when it is really great to live in the country area and have places to ride and horses a plenty. LOL!! We do not ride our bikes enough either, we get so busy with other things that we forget to take some time and ride. I think we would use them more if we had a couple more bikes because then we could ride together. We have one bike for 13 of us, and Nana's kids have one bike too and there are like 10 of them now. Mama has been watching ebay for another bike for us, I am so glad that you got the chance to ride.

    Miss You,
    Hugs,
    Taryn

    1. Taryn,
      That is so cool that you know how to ride a horse! You should ask your mama for another bike- then you could have races! That would be really fun.

      Miss you lotsly,

  3. We love horses, too, and it's so much fun to ride them. We watched Felicity's movie the other night and it really made us want to go riding soon! We have to borrow Felicity's and Elizabeth's horses to do that.

    And OMG! teehee I asked for that bike for Christmas. I sure hope I get it. It looks so cool and fun.

    Hugs,

    1. Charlie,
      Using training wheels is fine! I felt like a big baby since I can't balance without them!
