GREENWICH, Conn. -- Grace O'Sullivan is an old hand at riding ponies.
The 3-year-old student at Round Hill Nursery School in Greenwich was dressed in a cowboy hat and boots as she rode Hunny, a 16-year-old Shetland Pony mix, during the school's annual Western Day.
"Having fun," she said shortly after her ride Friday morning as she said she's ridden ponies before.
The nursery school has the annual Western Day to mark the end of the year, said school director Mindy Dudley.
"It's a feel good end of year event for our students," she said. "There's no purpose other than to have a good time and wrap up a great school year. Just to give kids, the pre-schoolers a fun day."
The school, which was founded in 1946 and is celebrating its 70th anniversary, has 80 students ranging in age from 2-5.
The two ponies, Hunny and Willie, who are Shetland Pony mixes, along with Earl, a pig and Lois and Gary, a lamb and a goat, respectively, along with some other animals, were provided by Pied Piper Pony Rides and Petting Zoos.
