Erin’s found a hobby she loves. We’ve done a few clubs at school – gardening, games, art. She’s also been a Rainbow for nearly a year which she absolutely loves. We’ve considered sport hobbies like judo, gymnastics and karate but pony riding has been the one to really capture her imagination. She says she feels more confident on a pony than she does on a bike, and it shows. She still looks a little awkward on her bike, still needs stabilisers. She looks natural on a pony, comfortable, confident.
It’s a lovely feeling to see your child really enjoying something. I’m already planning a ‘pony account’ as it’s not a hobby that comes cheap but it’s well worth every penny.
