Emily is a horse-crazy little girl who I know. When she was 4 years old, she told her mom that she wanted to take riding lessons. Sue started giving her lessons on Tina, our little 14 hand Arabian mare. When Tina’s arthritis got too bad for her to be ridden, Em switched to Tish who is 2 inches taller and has a bigger walk. This January we adopted Alibi, who is a retired racehorse. Now Em has a lesson on Tish, then a short lesson on Alibi. She’s ridden all of our horses at least once, but Alibi is hers.
