A 1st Place Ribbon for Grace

Grace had her very first horse riding competition today. She was all dressed in proper riding gear and she's a real horse girl. She's been taking riding lessons all winter.

So at the competition, she waited patiently. It was the hottest day of the year. She waited and waited for her turn to compete.

Finally, it's her turn. Here she is. She's riding Dixie today since her regular horse, Melodie, had to get a new shoe.

Yippee, she placed first! Isn't that amazing, that Grace, as petite as she is, has control over such a lovely but large horse.

CONGRATULATIONS GRACE!! We're so proud of you.

That is amazing -- I was just telling my sister-in-law that I've never ridden a horse before.
