FIRST PHOTO: Magic the horse bares his teeth in a winning Easter smile Saturday afternoon while giving children rides at Maui No Ka Oi Horsemanship in Kula. The former polo pony, therapy animal and Makawao Fourth of July Parade mount recently had his teeth checked by a veterinarian and received a clean bill of health. The doctor also said he was likely more than 22 years old. Back in the saddle, patiently waiting for his ride to commence while Magic poses for photos, is Giulian Huesing. The annual event is a fundraiser to help young riders participate in a benefit trail ride for St. Jude's Hospital.
