Maddie loves horses. She has loved them since she was little, and she has only grown in her love for them. Every year, we allow the girls to pick one activity to be involved in that costs money. They can do school plays, church activities, etc. as much as we can manage, but 1 activity each for 3 girls equals a lot of money, so 1 activity it is.
Last weekend we signed the younger girls up for dance, and surprised Maddie with a week of horse camp at Heatherwood Equestrian Academy. She got to take care of Angel, a Connemara pony. She learned lots about caring for horses. Her smile below was worth all the money we paid for the camp.
