I found it it was a real strain to constantly need to take both of my children to a variety of different places all over the city just because my children have very different interests. For example, my son played different sports. My daughter was into dance and crafts. But we found out accidentally that both of them have an interest in riding horses. You can imagine how this saved time for me. As soon as I learned they were both interested in long-term classes, I bought childrens horse riding clothes to help them feel the part and it worked. They loved everything that I purchased for them. While both of them loved different things, such as sports vs. dancing, they love riding much more than they do anything else they have ever done as a recreational hobby.
The way that my children’s new found love started was that my husband and I took the kids out to Kentucky to visit my husband’s brother. He owns a horse farm, which is not uncommon in that state. You can drive for many miles and hours and see many of these horse farms next to each other. It is really a beautiful area. Our kids took to the horses right away, and every morning after they woke up, they couldn’t wait to get through breakfast so that they could rush out to meet up with their uncle and take care of the horses with him and learn from him.
On the second day of our trip, my brother in law decided to teach the kids how to ride. It’s all they could talk about after we arrived home once again. This went on for weeks. I overheard the two of them talking alone with one another, and my son mentioned that he wished that he could go still riding now that we were home. Our daughter said that she missed it quite a bit. This is when I decided to offer them both a chance to take classes.
