I went with a few friends to watch some race horses put on a show one day as part of a local carnival. The event was to raise money for the school. While watching the horses, we saw one of our classmates riding on it. We didn’t know that she rode horses, but she was pretty good at it. She was able to go at fast speeds and jump around like it was nothing. After the show was over, we went up to her and asked her how long she had been riding. She told us that she had been doing it for a long time, since her early childhood days.
I became interested in riding on that day, and now I’m training to race my own horse. The same classmate that I saw at the show is my trainer. She’s a little strict with me, but fair. (more…)
