I barely slept the night before and when I did, I dreamed of being horseback with my girl by my side. I jumped out of bed Sunday morning with a smile on my face and butterflies in my belly - it was the day the dream would come true.
Ok, I admit to being dramatic, but only just a bit. I found a little backyard barn set ideally abutting conservation land. Four stalls are home to 3 horses and one little puff of a pony. Cocoa is her name and teaching kids to ride is her game. And Ella and I are in!
The first day went so well. We groomed, we tacked up, we rode and then cleaned up. She loved it and my heart swelled.
Me, my girl, and a pony....dreams really do come true.
Stay tuned for many more Cocoa updates to come, hopefully with the boys included too :)
