Yesterday was a special day for our little Cowgirl. Paisley has been in love with horses since she knew what one was. It makes my heart pitter patter knowing that she has such a deep love for them like her mom. I started riding when I was 2/3 (competing at 3) and was so excited when she took interest. She’s had two horses since last year but nothing really “fit” to start learning by herself.
My parent’s found “Sy” from a family friend last week and we just knew he was the one. He’s a 20 year old retired roping horse and is the sweetest guy for our Paisley and the perfect kid horse. When we pulled him out of the barn yesterday, Paisley’s whole face just lit up. We immediately had to jump on and take a ride.He lets her just dote all over him and she is smitten that she has a “big girl” horse like mommy and Papaw.My parent’s kept my first saddle so this whole experience was pretty special for all of us. It needed a good cleaning so she’s using my barrel saddle for the time being.
She is proud as punch and I am so thankful for the joy he has brought and will bring to her. I’m also pretty stinking excited for a little riding buddy. We love you bunches Paisley and are so happy for you. I can’t wait to see what all you and Bullseye will do in the Cowgirl and Rodeo realm. Yee haw, sweet girl.
