Horseback riding

As expected Aidan loved horseback riding! He picked everything up pretty fast and surprised the instructor by being ready to trot on the first lesson. The pony he was riding had a pretty rough trot so his next lesson, tomorrow, he will ride a different one. He wants to go once a week, so Saturday mornings will be our regular day. After his lesson Thursday we went and bought him riding boots, half chaps, and a riding helmet. He was so excited he wore the boots home. The pony didn't really take him seriously with his rubber soled shoes but Aidan was still able to get that stubborn thing going. Only once did Jamie (who is actually also the owner and a really nice man) have to go over and help him out. Today he was practicing putting the half chaps on by himself.
