We felt her pain and brought a few plastic medals (two for Noa and a few more for any other riders who needed them) and that seemed to satisfy her in the moment, though she did ask for a couple of her heavier real medals when we got home. They just make better noise.
In spite of the lack of medals, we all enjoy socially distant setting. It gives us a chance to commune to with the other riders and families at Noa's stable. Noa enjoyed the picnic lunch after (and wanted to know and spell everyone's name), and especially enjoyed a foot-push swing they have on the premises.
Noa seemed to really enjoy having her special riding cloths on (she helped to button some of the buttons on her shirt), and when we got home she refused to take her outfit off until after going out on her stroller ride. Of course, wore the medals all night, to bed and then to Potter on Sunday. She informed me that she wanted to put them on her walker at school.
