"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Putting Away Horses

The project:
Helping our daughters' riding instructor put away the horses a dozen kids used during today's Fun Day at the Arena.

30 minutes or so (who was counting?)

Why bother?
The riding instructor gave not only her horses, but her entire day to the area's youngest riders. After setting up the event, arriving early to prepare the arena and horses, then bustling throughout the day, I'm sure the last thing she wanted to do was brush and put away all those horses and their tack. We stepped in without asking and got the job done.

Worth it?
YES! Any time spent with horses is good time, plus it helped get our instructor back to her own family sooner. We hope that, with this kind of help (and more), she'll continue offering these days.
