My daughter seemed to have no real interest in most things for a very long time. I began to introduce her to more types of recreational hobbies in the hopes that one of them would stick. One day she taught me what she was interested in on her own. We were passing by a store that offers childrens horse riding clothes and she pointed out that she would love to do more than just read about horses or collect horse-related items. She wanted to actually learn how to work with and ride them, too. I had tried to get her interested in this a couple of years without much luck, so it was very surprising to me at first.

We have to be very careful about throwing ourselves into helping our daughter too quickly when she expresses an interest in something. She has a very long habit of showing interest in a lot of things, and then she quickly grows bored within just weeks or even days. We have learned the hard way that we need to feel things out a bit more and see if she will stick with them. after her daughter talk about learning how to ride horses, she continued to talk about it for quite some time. This is not how she usually presents herself. I paid attention, and then I decided to take her by a nearby stable to have them talk with her.

The day that I took her to the stable is the day that began her journey of actually sticking to something. One of the writing teachers offered to give her a class for free that day. My little girl jumped up and down and exciting. The teacher that looked at me and asked if it was alright. I said that was fine. Then I set back and watch for an hour and she soaked in every single thing the teacher. When she got up on the horse, she had a giant smile on her face. She has now been in classes here for 3 years and doing extremely well.
