My First Canter
by A horsecrazy rider
This is a true story.
I woke up with an exciting feeling. Today I was going horse riding. After breakfast I got dressed and rushed downstairs. By the time my dad and sis were ready I was already in the car. We set off to Irton riding centre.
When I got there I put my helmet an and went to find Penny. My pony. She was eating out of her hay net. I took hold of her reins and led her into the arena. I mounted and we went off at a smooth trot. We went around 2 times until the riding instructor said time to canter.
I was really scared so I clung onto the saddle.We were doing the rise and trot until Pip the horse in front of me turned into a canter. I followed and I felt the breeze blowing my hair back as I did my first canter!!!
