Here's a picture of 5-year-old me sitting atop an Indian pony during our stay at Manuelito, New Mexico. If my vague recollection of this event is correct, all I did was sit on the horse and wasn't allowed to actually ride around.
Here's the setting for that photo.
And of course I played with the local kids. This little girl was showing me her baby rabbit when Dad snapped the photo.
