Levi and Kenzie

Hey, ya'll! It’s me, Levi! It's been boiling over here at the farm. You can see the heat rising from the ground, and it's a little too tranquil.

Summer riding camps ended a little over a month ago, and we're all starting to get a bit restless. Both staff and horses are looking forward to autumn. Then, sessions will begin again, and we all enjoy the brisk weather. But, more than that, we all miss our riders.

I've been thinking a lot about little Kenzie. When I first met her, it was hard for me to wrap my head around the idea that someone could be so small, even for a three-year-old. However, I soon discovered that her slightness was because of down syndrome. But, other than that, one could have just assumed that she was only little. I could barely feel her weight when they gently placed her on the bareback pad. She was a bit nervous at first, but soon we were both enjoying ourselves. She kept calling me a cow because of my brown spots, and she made everyone laugh. For someone so little, she has such a big personality.

During the session, she worked some on word association and did wonderfully, but I think that I will always be called cow. I don't mind. After a few more exercises and walks around the arena, we tried some kinesthetics. It was then that Kenzie started to have a little trouble. But, after a few sessions, she's been able to do most of the exercises with ease.

We all love her dearly, and I can't wait to see her again!
