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 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?
