Hey horse crazy people! I live in Vermont Northfield and this is how I became horsecrazy!
I grew up on a tiny but cute farm with some pigs and chickens and typical farm animals,but I didn't have horses yet when I was young. But when I first laid eyes on the book Black Stallion,I wanted my very own horse. When I was about nine, My parents bought me my very first 10 month old paint filly.I named her Dawn. And when I first scratched her behind her ear, I knew we would be best friends for life! When she turned 2 and I turned 11, me and my dad helped train her. We tought her how to jump,be calm around noices,and behave around little kids. Than my dad told me it was time to strap her first saddle on her. I got all wide eyed and I began nodding my head real fast. My dad told me that it might take some time for her to get used to have a heavy saddle on her back. I didn't care,I knew I'll be riding her in no time. She turned three and I turned 12,she already knew what it's like for me to be on her back. But,when I first sat on that saddle,I felt a shock of connection. I trusted her and she trusted me. My first jump didn't go to well though because when I saw that first log jump on the trail,she jumped it and I fell off.I was lucky I didnt have a concusion! But it hurt bad enough so I couldm't move. I said to Dawn, "Go get help."At first I thought she wouldn't understand me! But she DID! SHe ran down the path leaving me behind. In another half hour or so, Dawn had dad on her back. And I returned home safly. And the good part is,I didn't brake any bones. And I never had a hero before,but,I finnaly found one and it's a horse! She will always be my hero,always!
