Over this term, we have had a few tamariki who have had a huge interest in horses, so Michelle invited us all to her place to meet two of her horses, Raven and Fudge and to have a little ride if the tamariki were interested. So on Saturday, 20th June, we met at Michelle’s where her horses were waiting ready to meet those who came. We put on a yummy sausage sizzle, yummy slices and hot drinks for the whānau and tamariki to enjoy while they waited for a turn.
Both Raven and Fudge were very well behaved horses, allowing the tamariki time to pat and greet them and then to have a walk around the arena. The tamariki loved the experience, overcoming their fears very quickly and returning for another ride. It was wonderful to see the big turnout of whānau, tamariki and their siblings to enjoy this wonderful experience.
