Trail riding fun with their ponies

Pony Love

We have five horses and five ponies on the farm. I’ve been a Parelli Natural Horsemanship follower for a while and my children share the same passion.  They have an incredible relationship with their ponies, Coco and Mitzi.  They are amazing little creatures and follow them everywhere.

I take the children  on a 3-4 hour trail ride every week , they love their wild adventures.  When it rains one of our pastures fills like a lake so they have fun swimming with them.

We found these at the stream during the trail ride.  When I was little, (in Zimbabwe) I used to play with the “Chongololos” all the time. I haven’t seen them since so was surprised to find them – the children were quite amused and brought them home. They spent quite a bit of time watching and playing with them.

Sasha and Sania’s cute pony video was a featured video on Parelli Tube just recently, it’s wonderful that they can be an inspiration for all.  Enjoy!!!

About earthboys

Nature is our way of living. It is a gift to cherish and share with our loved ones. Nature is also our gift to our children. It has allowed them to unfold in a graceful childlike way. Growing up in Southern Africa amidst the wildlife, I, myself feel the significance of what nature offers, a call for environmental enlightenment and a unearthing of the relationships between plants, insects and wildlife. We have provided our children with a safe paradise where they can enjoy and be one with nature, playing with worms, watching an ant trail, flitting along after a butterfly, gathering, smelling and admiring a beautiful flower, building sand structures of mountains and lakes. They are always happy when they are outdoors. Their relationship with our animals is one full of love and caring. Our children have brought us great joy and happiness. This blog is dedicated to them, and an inspiration to others.

    How wonderful that your children have such a close relationship with their ponies. So wild and free – just as it should be! We have chongololo’s here in England too – little guys but so good to see them. I will post pictures of ours sometime soon to show you!

    This is just amazing. I have a horse as well, and I’d love it if I could live where you guys do, but unfortunately all I have is a small pasture.
