My Wild Horse Ride Story
(Gloucester Mass. U.S.A)
One day I decided to to take my pony Little Chief out for a trail ride for the first time ever! For the first 20 minute or so he was doing great. I was ready to start cantering, but suddenly he shot forward and took off at a full gallop!
I was sooooooo scared but at the same time it was fun! we were galloping for at least 15 minutes he was jumping over fallen trees and rocks it was out of control.
I lost both my stirrups and eventually fell off but right when I hit the ground I shot back up again to try to catch Chief because he was still running full speed.
He stopped at a shady spot to eat some grass. When I got him I realized the girth was way too tight - that's why he was running. He's the kind of pony when there's something wrong he is sure to to let you know!
After I loosened up the girth to the right size i got right back on. When I did he behaved like an angel.
