Soren’s First Horseback Riding Lesson

I’ve said all along that Soren was a horse in his past life or a golden retriever who loves the water.  Today his dream came true. He was able to have a 45 minute horseback riding lesson.  We’ll see if horse riding is something he wants to do in the future, but for now it was a HUGE hit!

When given the chance, he loves to ride any horse – even machine ones 🙂

We are here at Apple Tree Farm in Hollis, NH for Soren’s first riding lesson.


Getting his helmet fitted.


Ready to roll mom


Hey look I think that is my horse


Okay little guy climb on up like this.  “I know, like this and hops up onboard.  I’m telling you, he is a natural!”


Learning how to hold the reins


Jump position


After trotting Corielle a little bit, all smiles!


And the trail back to the paddocks

After he had a ice cream.


Overall, his first horse lesson was a SMASHING SUCCESS and he was thrilled with the entire 40 minutes!

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
