One of Matney's friends had a birthday party this past fall where the main entertainment was riding "ponies". Only problem - the ponies didn't show up. Solution, the company that was a no-show made it up by inviting all the attendees to come to their property and ride horses around a practice ring. I think Matney had more fun doing this than she would have going in a small circle in our friend's backyard. Win-Win!
Now, if I could only get Matney's Mommy on a horse again - she has only gone riding with me once (as a present to me when I graduated law school).
