Horseback Riding Lessons | I've Been Tagged

What can I say, those pranksters over at Dip-Dip and The Bridge, got me! I know my M always deletes this type of emails, but I'm better than that, so I graciously accept the challenge.

What I've got to do:
1. Open my first photo folder (in a moment)
2. Scroll down to the tenth photo (wish me luck)
3. Post the photo and tell the story behind it (do I really have to?)
4. Tag 5 more people (with pleasure!)

The next five victims are:
1. Dip Dip (BOL, wasn't in the rules, so I'm getting them back)
2. Frankie Furter (so looking forward to what he'll come up with)
3. Sonic (he's lonely, oh, Sonic, Sandy Yago is that-a way)
4. Coco, but not Tiffy (Coco needs to feel special)
5. Captain Crunch, Candy, and Miss Bailey (while there's still time)

Grabbing that photo NOW... I got lucky, and so did you, my furiends. M has gazillions of photos.

The story: 
Once upon a time...BOL just kidding. M has two peanuts; a girl and a boy. After visiting a carousel, the girl from the photo, age 5 then, decided she was done with toy horses and she wanted the real thing, horseback riding lessons. M found a five-day day-camp and enrolled both her peanuts. Day 1: both peanuts came home stating that they had "rotted in the sun." Day 2: boy peanut only "rots in the sun" while girl stays quiet. Day 3: boy peanut still rotting while girl is trotting. Day 4: same. Day 5: The end of the week event for parents. Both peanuts were on top of a horse doing vaulting (gymnastics). Moments into the not-so-well-rehearsed-routine, boy peanuts starts to fall calling girl-peanut's name and sounding accusatory--yes it was a long fall. The result: boy still accuses sis (he still does, fifteen years later) and becomes a water polo player. Girl: has been taking horseback riding lessons almost every day since then and wants to become a horse trainer--after she gets her BA, M said. 

You know what, my Dip-Dips, this was a fun tag after all. Thank you!

That was really cool! Mom remembers riding all the time when she was younger, had her own horse and everything...then she stopped and got old, decided to ride again and now is scared most of the time. But, she is determined to ride again. I think she should just stay on the ground and brush them, but then again I am just a dog and have no interest in riding.

What a great story.. Sure glad girl still loves horses.. Mom had a pony when she was small and graduated to a horse at like age 8. She was so small she had to push the saddle onto the horse. She soon figured out it was easier to just ride bareback.

Amazing what those human pups hold on to even after they grow up, huh? My human brother and sister still talk about the time Master let them watch that movie Pet Cemetary when they were too little and got freaked out.
