After much heartache we decided to switch Sydney to a different riding barn. She is now at Firestone Equestrian which is based out of Camp YNoah where she went to summer camp. She is riding with a small group of six girls in the English Trot, Canter, Jump. I was very proud to see her engaging this new group of girls and speaking up for herself. She had no trouble expressing to her teacher her strengths and weaknesses. To my surprise she even took on her very first jump. Granted it was only about a half foot off the ground but she and her horse successfully cleared it with decent form. She still has sooo much to learn but the glowing smile on her face the whole way home was priceless.
