Forever or Never - Part 1

"Into the trailer you beast!" The angry man screamed at me. As my owner called the man, Lucas, smacked my rump. I felt like striking at Lucas with my hind legs, but I always heard my mothers words in my head, "humans are our owners and we must do as they say."
I gave a shrill whinny, as if to say help me, don't let him take me away! I tripped as I was climbing into the trailer. Memories flooded back to me. I went back to the time in the grand pony nationals when me and my owner Emma were flying over jumps.
We were over 6 of the 7 jumps of the course and doing great. I felt Emma reach down to give me a pat and heard her whisper "good boy" to me. As I made the turn to the final jump. We were now 5 strides away.4strides away. 3 strides. 2strides and then I tripped on the dirt, smashing into the jump. Emma was flung over my head and she landed in a heap. She didn't move. I fell onto my knees and and I landed on Emma's leg. I heard a snap.
Vets and doctors rushed over. The doctors loaded Emma onto a stretcher and I stared at her. I tried getting up to go see her, but my legs wouldn't support me.
"Spirit!" I heard her weakly cry.
Her head lifted up a bit and then plopped down. I felt so bad as the vets pulled me away. I limped back to the trailer with barely any energy. The next day I sat in my stall. Lucas came plodding down the barn isle stopping at my stall. He opened the door and I came to give him a friendly greeting. He slapped my face hard. I jumped back.
"You broke both her legs, and she is unconscious! All because of you! You stupid horse!" I was hurt by these words. The 3 last ones had echoed in my head. You stupid horse. You stupid horse. I spent the rest of that day gloomily thinking about Emma. I was sudden brought back to present time by a sharp whip.
Lucas loaded me onto the dark trailer and shut the door with a loud BANG! I curled up into the corner of the trailer imagining my mother. The bay mare with kind eyes in my head comforted me.
I heard the truck start and rumble along the gravel driveway. I wondered where I was being taken. About 2 hours later I arrived at my new home.
