Girl says thanks to her project horse

To the editor:

My name is Ashley Lyons and I am 11 years old. In November 2010, I took my first horseback riding lesson.

My mom took me to the barn for my lesson. When my mom saw Bubba, she got scared. She thought Bubba was very big, but I fell in love with Bubba.

Bubba became my 4-H project horse and we practiced a lot. Bubba and I won 50 ribbons during the 2010 show season. One was for Grand Champion in Showmanship and one was for Reserve Grand Champion Novice Rider at the Ag Expo.

I wanted to thank Bubba for helping me become a horseback rider. He is a good teacher. I also wanted to thank Mr. Tim for allowing me to use Bubba as my 4-H project horse, and Ms. Christi for teaching me how to ride and for making my Mom not feel scared about horses.

Thank you, Bubba. I love you.

Ashley Lyons
