Horsey horsey...

Big new thing for Lilian riding lessons!

Something we've been meaning to do for a while now. We hear nothing but good things for strength building and OT therapy. We were worried she'd hate it and cry for daddy all the time. She did the opposite. She loved every minute and smiled all the time. I think she forgot I was even there! She sat with the physio on the horse for the first 20 minutes then progressed to being on her own. They did some laps of the barn first then went off for a walk in the woods. They change her position in the saddle to stretch her legs out and give her things to hold other than the handle on the saddle so she has to use her muscles to steady herself. It's booked for an hour once a week. We're so happy about it. I used to ride horses when I was younger so it's great to see Lilian enjoying it. Mette isn't much of a fan of horses though. She's scared they're going to bite her. My Mum loves horses and also used to ride so she's going to love seeing Lilian riding.
