Horse Challenge By Sophie-Lee

It was the day before school starts. I was in the car on my way to Kelly's house and I was about to have my first horse ride. I was feeling excited but when I got there I felt nervous. Kelly took us to see the horse. It was two hills away. I felt very scared when I saw it. The horse was very tall. It was white with tiny black miniature spots. ''I don't want to do it any more.'' I told myself.

Mum put me on the horse. ''Its so high up.'' I thought. Kelly gave me the rope and she whacked the horse's bottom! But the horse just walked onwards to the gate ''Thank goodness.'' I sighed. I seriously thought I was going to fall off! I mean the horse did seem pretty scary!

Everyone was yelling, screaming and cheering me on. I felt embarrassed and scared. ''What happens if the horse takes off?'' I thought. Suddenly mum yelled out ''You can do it Sophie you're an Archer.'' right then I felt a little better.

I felt the warmth of the horse's fur rubbing on my legs as I sat on it. I finally figured out it was fun to ride a horse because it was a great experience.
Finally I was off the horse I begged mum for another turn but she insisted it was time to go.

I was off the horse and feeling great. It felt good to ride a horse. Some of it hurt but that is ok. I just loved the feeling.
