While we were at Thanksgiving Point, my kids were able to have pony rides which has sparked a love of horses in my 2.5 year old daughter. While I was making this post, she was standing at my side and said with a grin. . . I wan ride it! I'm a bit animal shy - so I think she's pretty brave. They are such imposing stately creatures. It was enough of a thrill for me to just stand back and take some photos.
