Montana–Day 4: Horseback Riding
I knew horseback riding was going to be a stretch for some of my girls. It took awhile to find a ranch that would work with me on what I wanted. The ages of my kids, duration of the ride, etc. Actually took a long while but I was glad I finally found a spot. Abby and Shae are familiar with horses so I knew they would be okay. I never know how Reagan will react but once she decides to do something she is completely fine. She hopped right on that horse and didn’t look back. CAMERON on the other hand gets very nervous and can hold onto it. Most of the time when she tries something new and gets worked up I have to walk away. Which is sad–but it is just how she gets over things. She has to do it on her own, in her own head. So for horseback riding she was very nervous to get on. And when we started the trail ride she cried for a good 10 minutes. Tyler kept on just about getting off his horse to just stop the ride to get her back. LUCKILY the staff was 100% fine with me saying to just continue on and ignore it. 10 minutes in she took a breath, did SO well, and really enjoyed herself. I was unbelievably proud of her.
It was so cool to watch the line ahead of me of my daughters riding their horses. I wasn’t worried about Reagan slipping off or Cameron started to freak out again. It was just beautiful to watch and really comforting. I hope we can be friends forever and do things like this as a family.
After our ride the little girls got to take a ride on the tractor.
After our ride we ate at a restaurant that I PRAY comes to Utah. How was everything from their lemonade to their macaroni and cheese to their rolls to their meat, the BEST I have had? I wish that I could transport this restaurant here. THE DESOTO GRILL
