Easter Sunday night, we took the kids to watch a horse jumping competition at the Equestrian Club just down the hill from our home. We stayed long enough to watch three of the competitions - Advanced riders on young horses, beginning riders on mature horses, and our personal favorite... ...a contest where each jump is assigned a point value and riders have a time limit in which they try to rack up as many points as they can- by carefully choosing their jumps. Our girls were delighted and entranced by the whole process, especially the many beautiful horses they saw throughout the evening. The boys, however, did not demonstrate quite the same fascination. What is it about these beautiful and majestic creatures that just melts a little girl's heart?
