Horse riding

Here is Eliza at this weeks riding lesson. This is rooster, her teacher Sage's horse. She is learning how to steer the horse a little more gently. It still scares me to see her trot with the horse but she can now go around the pen 3+ times before she stops him. She loves her lessons and is starting to remember all the terminology. The lady that owns the ranch Rooster lives on says, horse riding is in the blood and she believes the natural ability like Eliza seems to have skips 1-2 generations. So I guess we owe Eliza's Great Grandma Jean Roecker for that. We are so happy we are here in the valley where she can develop such skills (at a reasonably low cost to us :) )

oh I am so jealous!!! What a great opportunity for her. Isaac loved the picture and he is now always asking me to see it again, so we visit your page often. He sure does miss Liza.

That is so cool! I bet Eliza loves getting to do that.
