When thinking about things to do with kids that love animals, think horses. Most kids who love animals like horses! Pony rides have always been a big hit with kids so when you’re looking for activities for kids and things to do with kids at a country show, for example, don’t walk past the pony rides!
Here I am having my first pony ride at the Royal Adelaide Show in South Australia.
I do actually remember it a little bit, even though I was so young, and I remember having the trainer in front of me and my butt was hurting a bit because the saddle was hard and I wasn’t used to that. You can see I wasn’t even big enough for my feet to reach the stirrups.
I had to wear a riding helmet on my head in case I fell off and I was a little scared that I might.
Pony rides are great fun with the right horse and a safe situation but only for kids who are into it and want to do it. It can be scary the first time so don’t push and when the time is right a kid that’s keen will want to give it a shot.
