I walked across the hot summer campus, glad school was coming up, for a change. I had been here 9 days since the start of august to get everything ready, and I loved being back. My hair gently blew in the summer breeze. Seeing the barn, I smiled. Knowing who was inside is what made my life complete. I walk down the huge aisle, admiring the ceiling fans that kept the barn at a maximum of 75 degrees. I loved how it was so nice and cool for the horses. I walked into the tack room and grabbed my blue grooming satchel and my purple box of sponges and shampoos. I walk down to Stall 27, and softly rap on the stall. Harley stuck his head over the stall, his warm brown eyes flooding my mind. I stroked his cheek, and he leaned into my touch. I smiled. "Hey baby boy." I say, opening the door. I clipped Harley to the crossties, and started with my purple curry comb. After currying him, I moved onto the body brush. Halfway in, I put a hand on his neck, feeling his heartbeat. I smiled. I turned when someone tapped me on the shoulder.

I walked into the barn, excited to be able to ride Aristocra tafter our accident again. I saw the back of someone familiar. I tappped their shoulder, making sure my thoughts were true. OMG!! Violet! I smiled at her widely.

I quickly hugged her back before patting Harley on the shoulder. Do you want to practice dressage and jumpin gwith me then do cross country slash trail ride? I walked a few steps away, toward teh tack room.

I nod. "Always." I say. I hadn't ridden with a saddle in a while, So I reluctantly strapped on his saddle and martingale. After accepting the bit, Harley quietly nudged me with his head, his brown eyed batting playfully. I smiled, then strapped on his bright orange splints.

I walked Aristocrat out of his stall and tied him to the bars. I quickly gave him a once ove rwith the brush before setting a bright blue saddle pad on his back. I gently set teh English saddle down and tightened the girth. I slipped his bridle on, then grabbed my helmet. Aristocrat gently nudged me and started walking. Hey! Wait a sec boy. I quickly grabbed my helmet befor emeeting Vi outside by the arena.

I felt Aristocrat become more supple beneath me as he stretched out. I took him throuh some spirals, feeling him bend with ease. I straighted Aristocrat out and we moved into an extended trot. After two laps we went into and extended canter, then slow gallop. i slowed him down and asked for diagonals. His response was automatic and I felt each hoof strike the ground with persision and accuracey. I smiled to myself before asking for a slow canter. I took him through several flying lead changes before stopping and glancing at Violet. I'm ready when you are. I asked Aristocrat for an extended walk around the arena.

Aristocrat pranced as I led him toward the arena gate, he knew it was cross country time. I tunred to Vi as I opened the gate. Do you have a fave cross counrty course? I motioned for her to go ahead of me.
