The Girl Scouts (Junior level only - Emily's group) recently earned the Horse Fun badge. One of the moms owns a horse here so it was very easy to make all the arrangements to learn everything about horse care. "Making arrangements" is not always an easy thing to do here. The girls found out that there is alot more to horseback riding then just the riding part and I think quite a few would rethink asking mom and dad for a pony. The horse, Orlick (small eagle in Kazakh language), was very well behaved and the girls got to meet some of his friends as well.
