I could hardly wait for Wednesday because I wanted to introduce you to our friend’s darling pony, “Wrapped In Sterling.” Here is my little equestrian showing him at the Pensacola show this past weekend. They were a winning pair and brought home blue ribbons.
It was so cute because when we came back from the show my daughter asked me, “Mom, did I smile when I jumped?” That picture was all she needed. She’s all smiles when riding. That child practically came out riding. I’m so grateful that she found her passion at such an early age. She LIVES for horses. Doesn’t matter if it’s barefoot and bareback or all dressed up at a show, she just wants to be with horses. Actually she’ll tell you her favorite kind of riding is zipping around bareback with a fistful of mane and a twig of hay hanging out of her mouth. I love that!
She’s an amazing little rider. Here she is stepping up his trot. By the way it was 90 degrees during these shots. Not the friendliest riding conditions in long sleeves, a coat, gloves and velvet hat. The kids were real troopers.
He looks like a fairy tale pony doesn’t he? The best part is he is just as sweet as he is handsome…and very talented.
And here is Wrapped in Sterling’s mommy, Ella. They also showed this weekend and won both of their lead line classes. Look how precious they are together!
Ella has a six month old little sister, who also has an equestrian future. Looks like their fairy tale pony will have a life filled with sweet little girls, plenty of carrots, and lots of love. A happily ever after perfect for two princesses and their pony.
