If wishes were horses

Chapter One

Kylie Rivers brushed a lock of her curly brown hair out of her eyes and peered at the horse books.

"Kylie! Time to go!" Her Mum called. She sighed and followed her mum out of the bookstore. Kylie's mum handed her a shiny silver coin.

"Go make a wish." She waved her hand at a big fountain.

Chapter Two

Excitement fizzed through Kylie. What should she wish for? Then the answer dawned on her. A horse! She quickly made her wish and hurried back to her Mum. In the car ride home, she daydreamed about horses.

Chapter Three

In her room, Kylie drew a horse picture and then hung it up, and went downstairs for dinner. Her Mum and Dad were already eating.

When they were done, her dad said, "I have a surprise for you buckaroo. You're getting a horse and riding lessons!"

Kylie screamed, and jumped around, and hugged her Mum and Dad.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

"Come on outside and see your new horse." Her dad opened up the trailer and out stepped a blanket Appaloosa.

"She's beautiful." Kylie said.

"What are you going to name her honey?"

"Princess. Her name's Princess." Kylie replied. She put on a pink halter and then they walked off into the sunset.

Chapter Four

Kylie Rivers reached up and wiped the sweat from her forehead. She smiled at her horse Princess. The two of them had just finished a riding lesson.

"Good girl," she said.

Just then she heard a car honk.

"That's mom. Gotta go!" Kylie hopped in the car and buckled her seat belt.

"Hey Kylie," her mom said. The two of them chatted about Kylie's riding lessons, her mom's promotion at work and other things.

Kylie threw herself on her bed and sighed happily. Life was good.

Until... the phone rang.

"I'll get it mom!" Kylie yelled and raced down the hall. She glanced at the caller ID: Ivyleaf Equestrian Center. That meant it was Jane, her riding instructor.

"Hello," she said. "Uh-huh... wait, you what?!"

Chapter Five

"I entered you in a riding competition, that's all." Jane said. "It's only 2 classes, a simple walk and trot class and Best Turned Out. Now, if you excuse me, I have a class to teach."

Over spaghetti, Kylie told her mom everything.

"So she didn't ask you?" Kylie's mom asked.


"Just try your best." Her mom said and began to clear the dishes.
