I swear that this kid is the reincarnation of Dale Evans.
Maybe even Lucy Mulhall. Lucille Mulhall 1885-1940
She is a "natural" on the horse.
Doesn't shy away from her at all.
Doesn't get bothered by the horse poo smell.
She has great form and finesse while riding.
She even will stand with her thumbs tucked into her front waistband, one cowgirl boot up on a rock or other incline and with cowgirl hat on, peer off into the distance.
I wonder what she's thinking...
"gosh, these trees are beautiful in the morning"
"i could stay out here amongst nature until the end of time"
"i really could use a glass of chocolate milk"
The latter is probably it...
