"Anyone there?!" Minnie whispered into the dark stable, there should be an equine of some sort. Minnie was small and her horse t-shirt was beyond her waist, with the arms flapping about. Her hair was dark, long and uneven which was tied in an extremely loose plait. She loved horses, but as she was small she was frightened of having a bad fall on a horse 12.5 hands or more. Today was an own a pony day for her - only she didn't know what what she will get.

"Where are you h-hiding ch-cheeky?" She bravely stammered. Uncertainly, she reached out a arm (or more like a sleeve) and a muzzle nuzzled into it. A rather small muzzle. "Hello, your a real sweetie aren't you? Come into the light so I can give you a tasty carrot!" Automatically a small pony stepped forward, he had large ears, which were pricking up in delight and a beautiful grey sleek coat. But it wasn't any old pony, it was a Shetland!

"You must be... Cheeky Boy! Good name! Oh you are such a beautiful Shetland aren't you hey? Oh here's that carrot you wanted, still fresh!" Minnie was delighted at the pony she was borrowing, and the pony was delighted at her too (and her carrots!). They had half and hours fun of grooming: Minnie found it easy to groom all of Cheeky and not had to ask a taller stable hand for a hand! Cheeky was cheeky and took of Minnie's hat, Classic Shetland! Cheeky Boy looked like a bright shining star, coat brushed into a silver sea and mane into a cascading river.

"Looked like your tacked up and ready to go! Mind you on old Cheeky Boy you won't go anywhere, he is lazy! Why didn't you get a bigger horse, get a good canter!" Called a regular stable hand, as she lead the silver equine to the school. Minnie thought to herself: well maybe the riders that ride Cheeky ride are too tall and he doesn't like it! I will canter fine on him, not a horse!

Will Minnie get Cheeky Boy to canter? Find out in part 2!

Cheeky Shetland Adventure! Part 4.
by: Lily

Minnie was in the moment, living what was once a dream. When they finished their many laps round the school, to her surprise Katie, came up to her and hugged her and Cheeky. "I'm sorry I've been so hard on you two, you see Cheeky was my pony when I was little, like 5,6,7,8 but when I was nine, I was 5'0! Whenever I got on him he bucked me off, now I understand why but I always thought he hated me..." Now Minnie understood and felt like hugging Katie, she seemed like a little girl again (a tall little girl!).

As Katie was in a good mood she said "who's up for a jump? Can't be to tall as darling Cheeky Boy needs a chance!" Much to Samantha's dismay. "Come on my Cheeky, lets do it for Katie!" She whispered, knowing that Katie was listening. Aim for the jump, jump the jump, canter smooth after jump.. Thought Minnie "Aim for the jump!" Shouted Katie, with a tear in her eye, glistening in the warm sun.

Cheeky Shetland adventure! Part 3.
by: Lily

Cheeky willingly trotted round the sand school, springy and happy to please. No fuss. No bother. Minnie grinned bright and proud, whereas Katie's face was a clear sign of confusion. "Um well done, always thought you could do um it, yes mm, um anyway, Samantha and pickle you next!" Katie shouted.

Minnie usually watched Samantha and Pickle, as they were the best pair in the stable. Pickle was a huge majestic bay thoroughbred, amazing, but way to big for Minnie. Samantha was Minnie's age (12) but very tall and pretty, blue eyes, blonde hair, latest gear, 5 horse horse box, a dream girl anyone would think. But for Minnie she was rude and selfish. She got looked down on by her as only being 4ft 3 and being only level 1 at riding.

But today Minnie was to busy patting, stroking and praising cheeky boy to pay attention to anyone else, it was like nothing else mattered in the world but them - " Minnie MINNIE! Go on canter! I've asked you six times! Your holding me up! Then again,I bet you cant on that fleabag!" Snarled Samantha. Minnie was going to show her. Her and everyone. She will do it for Cheeky. "Canter Cheeky I know you will lets show them all!" She whispered to Cheeky...

Cheeky waited for a moment, a nervous knot was getting tighter in Minnie's tummy, But then. Cheeky shot of like a rocket in a fast, keen eager canter, balanced and perfect. Minnie eyes lit up and she new this moment will be one to remember. She smiled as shocked faces whirled round the sand school.

Cheeky Shetland Adventure! Part 2.
by: Lily

"For once Minnie, I think you can mount a horse correctly! Put your foot- oh you've already done it! I'm impressed!" Exclaimed Katie (her instructor) "I will be more impressed if you can tackle old Cheeky! Too small he is!" Minnie was puzzled. Why did every one look down on this silver wonder of a pony, because he was small? Thought Minnie, well people look down on me too because I'm small, they think I will be rubbish at sports... not horse riding!

"On lap round the school then come in and halt at x, rising trot, Minnie and Cheeky go first but everyone else- be free to over take!" Laughed Katie, not like herself. The blazing sun shone rays over the stables, making Cheeky Boy look majestic and glossy. "Trot my boy trot!"
