This is Grant riding Oreo. I must add, this is Gran’t first pony ride (all by himself). My dad worked with Grant for a few minutes before he sent him off. Grant was anxious to catch up with the older girls on their ponies. I was surprised by his confidence. I guess he just assumed the pony would be cooperative and he could just relax. My dad tried to teach him how to get the pony the stop by pulling back on the reigns. I don’t think the whole concept really hit home for Grant. He just wanted to get going. Here is a video of the first and second parts of the ride. He was doing great. Right after I stopped filming, my biggest worry happened. The pony started to pick up his pace, because he saw the other two ponies and wanted to catch up to them. And off Grant went. Right under the belly onto the sand. I hurried over and luckily he was fine. This pony is a great pony to learn on because he is so small. Thank goodness Grant wanted to get right back up and try again. That’s my boy!
