Pony Rides



And just think, for most of us, it all started with this..............

Loved my ponies. We were lucky to have four of them and I rode them all until I was too big. Seeing ponies always brings back all those childhood memories:-)

Do you remember the photographers that used to come around from house to house with the pony and the cowboy hat, chaps and vest taking pictures? I wonder how many kids those guys hooked on horses. I always wanted so bad to get my picture taken on that pony but my mom never would let me.

Mikael, My husband has a website, The People History, where people can record their memories and I had never heard of that until someone wrote in recently and sent the pic of them on the pony.

Here is a link to the posting from a lady and her picture of being photographed with a pony

Wow, that is too cool! I will have to check this out. But they did this when I was a child in Seattle and when my two oldest were children in Oxnard, CA I was able to get their pictures done there. So that's two generations that I know of on the west coast at least.
