Ginaís five children are all avid horse-lovers. Once a week, she brings each of them to horse-riding lessons. Unfortunately, just as all her kids are different ages, theyíre also at different riding levels and hence in different classes. To make it more complicated, each class is on a different day of the week and at a different time. And to top it off, each child rode a different horse, all of whom have different names. Poor Gina has a hard time keeping it all straight! Determine the name and age of each child, the day of the week and time (one was 11am) of each lesson, and the name of each favorite horse.
1. Amy has only one younger brother and he rode Bandit. The child who rode Venus is two years younger than the child who had a lesson at 2pm, but 2 years older than Matt.
2. The child with the 1pm lesson was older than the 12-year-old.
3. Peter was 14 and the oldest child, but his lesson was in the first half of the week. Rodeo was ridden on Tuesdays by one of Ginaís children, but not in the morning.
4. The youngest child, who was 8, rode Honey but didnít have a lesson on Wednesdays. Lucky wasnít ridden by Peter. The child who was 13 had a lesson on Monday.
5. The last lesson of the week was Friday at 3pm, but the 10-year-old didnít attend it. Calvin didnít have a lesson on Thursday.
6. The child with a lesson on Friday rode Venus. Tabitha had her lesson at 9am. The child who had a lesson at 1pm didnít ride Rodeo.
