Those Horse Girls - Chapter 1
I winced as Jackie, one of my best friends, ran a wet wash cloth over a cut I had gotten from the trail ride we just got back from. We had been rounding a corner when a deer jumped out of the woods. Banjo jumped and sent me into the dirt. "Ow! that really hurts!" I told Jackie.
Jackie groaned and kept wiping the cut. I yanked my leg from her hand. " Lacey chill out!" Jackie replied frustrated. She kept rubbing the cut. I stood up and walked to the medicine cabinet. I rummaged through the cabinet and pulled out a Band-Aid. I hopped up on the counter and let Jackie put the Band-Aid on the cut.
We heard a whinny outside. We made eye contact and ran to the window. "That's not Banjo" I announced. "It's not Replay" Jackie said with a tone of confusion. Replay is Jackie's thoroughbred mare. We both walked to out the door and to the barn. All the riding students were pilled in the barn door obstructing our view.
I forced the people out of my way. Once I was there, I asked what the commotion was about. "Maddie Winston is here!She is the most famous 14 year old jumper in America!" replied a little boy. I had seen her show before and she was amazing! Maddie walked around the big truck with the huge horse trailer hooked to it. "Hi, I'm Maddie Winston. I will be staying here for at least 6 months or maybe longer if I like it," she announced. Every one went nuts!
