problems maddie wants a horse. at least when she wanted a dinosaur there really wasn’t any way. but now, we are in trouble. 3 Comments Kenny on October 2, 2007 at 8:25 am T….maybe you can kill two birds with one stone….I know she’s a little young, but when Katie was in grade school she started volunteering at the rehab riding academy, where disabled people would go ride. She had to clean the horses, but she would get to ride them and help when a disabled person was riding. Maddie could spend a lot of time with horses and she would be doing community service at the same time…don’t know how old you have to be to volunteer, but it’s an idea…either that or make PY saddle up….
