Pretty much if you have a horse, you've gotten the "can I have a pony ride" request for your horse.
And if you haven't, I want to know what planet you live on.
Anyways. I used to not ever get those because Courage was straight off the track and possibly not always the picture of sanity, but now that he's doing really well, it comes up fairly regularly.
There's definitely a side of me that thinks Courage is a fancy show horse and shouldn't have his training derailed, but I'm also actively pursuing a fun, broke horse, and a great way to do that is to pile a bunch of kids on and make him deal.
So we give pony rides sometimes.
How else do you address the pony ride issue of horse ownership?
