Stone Ridge Farm Outdoor Arena

I love the outdoor arena at Stone Ridge Farm in Haverhill, MA. Its fairly small and quiet with lots of poles to walk around and over. Today, I did some weaving and maneuvering around the poles to challenge a 4 year old's postural control. She loved trotting and was motivated to say "I want more fast please". Her mom reported that she usually has to be prompted to string a series of words, but she did it several times today. Her singing is more fluid and autmatic than speech and she was able to sing along and follow directions to "if you're happy and you know it....give a kiss, make a noise, say achoo. Mom suggested adding "stick out your tongue" to her repertoire. A very good idea.......
