Aubrey loves the country.
My dad is fond of saying that she was born for this kind of thing.
She just... fits.
She loves being with horse most of all.
They seem to be kindred spirits...
to borrow a term from my favorite Anne of Green Gables.
Brysen has been waiting for his chance to ride Buck.
I guess he finally wore Grandpa down.
Here he is
jealously patiently waiting for his turn.
This was the big day when Aubrey was being given the chance to ride without the lead rope.
She was nervous, but the huge smile on her face was proof that she was so excited she couldn't keep it all inside.
She did a wonderful job!
She really is a natural.
