I GOT A PONY
By: Natalie Pretty – Age 6
Once upon a time, Natalie asked her Mom if she could have a pony. Mom said “You can have a pony if you take care of it.” Natalie promised that she would and thanked her Mom. That night when Natalie went to bed she could barely sleep because she was so happy and so excited, thinking about the new pony she would get. The next day Natalie and her Mommy went to Gail’s to ride a few ponies. First a lady named Celia rode the grey pony, his name was Rebel. After Celia finished riding she told Natalie to try Rebel out. Natalie jumped on the pony & rode him around the arena, she had him do a few small jumps, which he did nicely. After riding Rebel she wanted to ride another pony, he was pitch black. Natalie enjoyed her ride on the black pony but she preferred the grey pony. So the choice was made but before they could take Rebel home they had to wait for the Vet to check him out, so they had to leave him at Gail’s for another day. The next day after the Vet checked him out and said he was fine, Natalie got to take him home. Mom and Natalie had to walk Rebel around their field so he could get to know his boundaries. Our other horse named Ricky chased Rebel around, he chased him because he is a little mean sometimes & he thinks he can be the boss. But the real boss of the horses is a big black horse named Rave. Natalie loves her pony and since she got him she rides him often and takes good care of him. She also takes him to horse shows and together they have won many ribbons.
