Hi, I'm Abbie and I came to the ranch to ride today. It was fun and tiring. Fun because I saw a bear for the first time and tiring because I rode a tiring horse. Stormy was tiring because I had to keep slowing her down. I like Charlie better.
I'm Anna, Abbie's big sister. Today's ride was exciting because of the bear and the mustang I rode kept trying to bite all the other horses who might try to pass me. Buddy's the herd boss. Later Tammie and I switched horses and I rode Shy-Anne.
Here is a picture of us looking at the bear. See our amazed faces. Buddy can't look so amazed because he has facial paralysis. But he acted amazed! The stupid little bear would not get out of the road. We yelled. We threw rocks and we waited. It seemed to ignore us. We tried getting our horses to go forward, but they wouldn't pass the bear. So then, Tammie ran forward and hollered and threw rocks and it climbed a tree and then we were able to go.Here is a picture of the bear cub. We were worried its mommy might be near by.
Here are pictures of us goofing off back at the house after our adventurous and almost tragic ride.
