The local race club always has a heap of things going on to entertain the kids while the grown-ups have a bet or two. Megan immediately lined up to go on the "Mad Cow" a huge bucking bull.
She held on real tight!
Then it spun, bucked and turned until she went flying off!
Next Ryan had a turn.
He lasted a bit longer than Megan before he was thrown off! They loved the "Mad Cow" so much they lined up to have a go over and over again.
After we were all finished over at the track we went over to the stables to check out some of the horses.
This cheeky boy got a third.
Check this out.....both the kids and the horse were pulling faces every time I tried to take a picture.
This big boy got a first!
I think one day when the light is much better I'll go out to the stables and try and take a few more pictures, there is so much to look at.
Watching Megan around the stables I knew this is something she would really love to be around all the time, she really looked at home there.
I grew up with horses, competing on a regular basis at shows and sporting gymkhanas......I know Megan would thrive in that environment.......maybe one day we will be able to make that dream come true for her.
