Mouse has been interested in going horseback riding for some time. Well, when our good friend Anne Pellowski found out, she offered to take Mouse out to her family's farm, where her great-niece has a horse that Mouse could ride. (As a side note, Anne Pellowski is a children's author and world-renown expert on children's storytelling. Always boast about the famous people in your life!)
Well, Mouse spent about fifteen minutes being led around the corral by Anne's great-niece at a slow walk, which was fine by her. ("It seemed pretty fast to me!" she later said.) She thoroughly loved the experience, and is eager to maybe take riding lessons at our local stables, to which I only said, "We'll see!"
Here's a video of her experience:
