The Last Ride

Hi! My name is Taylor. I had a show on July 24-26. My horse Chloe and I were going to do all of the classes, but the one that still stands out the most to me, is when we got second in Western Pleasure...

We entered the ring at a walk. We walked around for one circle. The judge asked us to pick up a trot. We trotted smoothly around the arena. "Lope" The judge called. Chloe effortlessly kicked up into a lope. It was the smoothest we had ever rode. Then they had us line up in the center of the arena...

The Announcer called- Taylor and Chloe- Second place....!

That was the last time I ever rode Chloe. She passed away Feb. 17.
