Back in the Saddle
This is Laurel Ridge Farms and one of the many reasons I love homeschooling! Today the kids and I loaded up the car and Noah read our history lesson as we drove to the country. Dovie had a horseback riding lesson with Rebecca. This was a birthday gift from her grandparents. She has waited a year and a half to do this. Dovie loves Rebecca, the owner and her instructor at Laurel Ridge Farms. Before the lesson was over, the farrier made a house call. It was akin to Little House on the Prairie as he lifted open the sides of his trailer and set out his anvil. We had a chance to learn something unique as he worked the horses' hooves. It was a great day.
