My Horse-Crazy Life
A girl riding a black horse who has two white pasterns on its back legs and a white star. The horse is wearing english tack and a purple saddle pad. The riding is wearing english riding apparel. They are standing on concrete with a barn in the background.
Hi, I am 10 years old and my name is Molly. If you are in this club then you are bound to be as horse crazy as me.
I have been riding since I was 3 and I have had some great and not-so-great experiences. And one of my best experiences was a few months ago.
I was in wales having the riding lesson that I have every week. I was put on a cob called Little Harry and he is 15.2hh.
Most people can't get him to canter because he is afraid of a riding crop. I really liked him and my riding instructor (called Kelly) said he really liked me because he would do anything for me even if he was scared and I would do anything for him even if I was scared. I think he has helped bring my confidence and my riding so much.
My worst riding experience was on a 12.2hh skewbald called Patch.
Firstly: I was out on a hack on Patch. He was very skittery that day and he spooked side-ways because a branch moved in the wind. The girl behind me was on a pony called candy and there wasn't enough room for me to get backing before a car came!!!
The sound of the car's squeaking breaks spooked Patch. He reared and galloped past the car and pass the whole ride!! Luckily the ride leader galloped after me and caught me just before we reached the main road and everyone was OK.
