Ya’ll know we have a 10-year-old son we call “The Kid” in these parts. Well, we had hoped he’d take to the horses more than he has and would write some posts here and there. It hasn’t happened. Yet. We haven’t given up hope but he’s not showing much interest. Mikki and I can’t really understand this since we would have both LOVED to have had a horse at his age, but as I mentioned before, he’s more of an “indoors” kid. I think if he was to ride a horse he’d get into them more, but our two horses are both pretty spirited and I’m not sure I’m ready for him to ride either of them yet. We’ve toyed with the idea of buying him his own horse but I refuse to buy him something I’m not convinced he’ll take care of and we don’t need any more pasture ornaments!
I’d love to hear from some of you who have kids who aren’t into horses as much as you. Have you had any luck forcing them to be interested :-)?
