Riding Horses

Summer is a great season for riding sports. You can ride bikes, skateboards, scooters, trykes and even elephants. One kid tells Kidzworld about her favorite sport - horseback riding.

I would like to tell everybody how much I love to horseback ride.This is how I got started. I went to the riding ring to watch my big sister ride. I really wished that I could be on a pony too! I finally had the guts to ask my mom for a horse. She said she would think about it. Then my birthday came. My mom came into my room and gave me a whole bunch of weird looking brushs. I didn't know what to do with them so I asked, "What are these used for?"

My mom said, "They're for brushing a horse. You want to horseback ride don't you?" I ran up to her and gave her a big hug.

The next day we went up to a barn where two horses were grazing. One of the ponies was a real cutie. The girl that owned the pony said she was going to give me a riding lesson and then my dream came true.

    Cheerleading is definitely a sport! A lot of hard work is put into cheer leading. The dancing, tumbling, and even everything else. If gymnastics and dancing are considered sports, and are in cheerleading, then Cheer leading is a sport!
