I have a lot of updates to share but I will have get back to you Sunday night as I am leaving town for the weekend. My extended family of Pony Cowgirls (mom, sisters, aunts, cousins, second cousins, third cousins....) are attending a guest ranch this summer. And yes, we are taking our ponies! We have never done anything like this before. Many of us just got horses again this past year. We have been planning this trip for months, and needless to say, we are a little obsessed and excited. So we are having a "meeting" to plan some of the details for our trip. My sister and I are the Trail Boss Assistants and we are presenting our ideas for a cowgirl play day and themed trail rides (like a breast cancer awareness ride.) Now let me say that these "meetings" with my Pony Cousins are not your typical meeting. There will be gifts, shopping, lots of Starbuck's stops, cowgirl dress-up, a fashion show and skit, and great food, stories, laughter, and fancy drinks with names like Tears of the Sun. Which gave Pony Girl an awful migraine last year. I still don't like to talk about it. And, what happens at Pony Cousins gatherings stays at Pony Cousins gatherings, so I will not be able to share too much with you. But I will try to sneak you a few photos. Traditions like this will build memories that exemplify what family is all about. What special horse gatherings and traditions does your family have?
