On a beautiful, Saturday morning last week Christina Ohlsen and Cathy Hoffeld loaded up their miniature horses. With the help of Christina’s husband, Joel, they headed down to the trail that runs behind the Greenhorn Valley Library. There they unloaded the mini’s and met up with Pam Jones, Cathy’s sister-in-law, to help them with getting the kids on the mini’s and leading them down the trail.

Ohlsen said, “Cathy and I got started working with these miniature horses when Christina’s son, Kyle, subtly reminded her that his Grandparent’s (Bob and Dorothy Ohlsen) had gotten him, his sister and cousin’s ponies to ride when they were kids."

Since she and Cathy both had become grandparents about the same time, about 12 years ago, and had heard about some “minis” being available in Kansas, they decided to buy them. Ohlsen and her husband went to Kansas to pick them up, and found that one of them had originally been born here in Rye at her in-laws (Ohlsen’s) place.

The group had the horses all saddled and waiting when the kids started arriving and were so excited to see and ride those beautiful little horses. Some of them were riding a horse for the first time.
