Self Portrait Tuesday - History

Originally uploaded by SideShowMom.
Here's some photos from the old family album for Self Portrait Tuesday. This is me at 5 riding my mom's horse Suntan. Isn't he handsome all stretched out for his photo? She was a member of the Heart of America Riding Club and we went on breakfast trailrides at Benjamin Stables one Sunday a month. It was a ladies' club and the men (the "Auxiliary") would stay at the picnic ground and cook our scrambled eggs and bacon over the campfire. I thought I was all grown up because she let me ride with the club (I must have been all of 8 or 9 when I started). Suntan had a silver-decked parade saddle we would use sometimes. Very handsome!
