At my real barn lately it's ben quiet. I'm not complaining, I like having the arena to myself but I had to create some type of organized chaos. Enjoy it in miniature form!

As you may have known, Trail Blazer Farms had started a new trail riding program which was wildly popular. However, the program had one flaw, riders must be of eight years or older to ride. It was a sensible rule and an important one. There were a lot of kids though who wanted to ride, but they were just too young. So Lily decided to round up her friends and start having pony rides. After getting their idea approved by the owner, Sydney, they set to work training the ponies. They had to work on teaching the ponies to stay spaced out and to walk slowly.
The next step was to walk them in tack. The girls saddled the ponies in western tack. Magnum didn't mind the new saddle.
Jackson didn't care for the new amount of weight and much preferred his old, light Wintec multi-purpose english saddle.
AJ cared the least since he was always ridden in western tack.
Magnum thought he was quite charming in his new western attire and pranced about the ring, much to everyone's disliking.
The girls were sure that their plan would work. Friday night arrived, three trail rides had been scheduled, pony rides had been heavily advertised, and the ponies were ready. The girls brought the ponies into the ring and Lily took a breath. This was their moment, they were going to put on the first ever TBF Pony Ride.
"Yes, I've been on a few trail rides. I'm going on one tonight. My parents came along and brought my brother so he could have a ride too."
"That's nice. He can pick out the pony he wants to ride and you can give Megan your fee,"replied Lily.
