horsing around, seriously

my eldest daughter unna, all of 7, told us on our way to tagaytay highlands that she wanted to go horseback riding on her own. i hesitated, then said yes. my husband also said yes, but he sounded more certain and more comfortable about this decision, it seemed.

when we got there, unna confidently mounted the horse. i actually also went for an assisted ride with my 6-year old laila and from a distance, i would watch my big girl negotiating the track without the help of a manong. i would later learn from unna that she also asked the manong to let go of the leash so she can maneuver it on her own.

what can i say? my daughter wants to strut her own stuff. at 7.
