Equestrian Uncles are Great!

My brother Richard has been riding horses for over 10 years now, and is quite good at it. And every time we go to Utah, we have the fun opportunity to watch him ride. In preparing for this trip, Amelia REALLY wanted to ride one of Richard's horses and talked about it A LOT! She loves to hear about his horses, loves to watch him and talks about him with great admiration. In a lot of ways, I think Uncle Richard is one of Amelia's heroes. Both of them have such a great love for animals and it seems to have formed a special bond between the two of them. This was definitely a highlight of our trip.

This is Amelia, riding alongside her uncle on a VERY big horse

Lucy participated in the fun, too. I really didn't think she'd get on a horse, but these horses are truly magical, and Lucy was instantly grinning ear to ear.
