I walked into the barn, my hair tied in a ponytail. I yawned, wondering if anyone else would be in the barn at 9:30 in the morning. Probably. But, as I walked through the barn I noticed that not a single person was out. I smiled to myself. I didn't exactly look my best, but I was riding so who cared, right? My hair was two days old, so it was starting to get a little dirty, and I hadn't bothered to put any makeup on except for some concealer and a swipe of mascara. It was Saturday, so I was surprised that there weren't more people in the barn, but it was fine by me to ride alone. I wanted to be able to work on the stuff that I needed to work on, not feeling pressured by anyone. I found my maroon halter and a random lead rope, and went to find Josh, the horse I was leasing. He only jumped 2 feet, so I was going to have to move off him soon, but I loved Josh and wanted to spend all the time that I could with him. As I began to groom Josh, I thought about my time at Canterwood. I didn't care about being popular, well not that much anyways, and I only hung out with a few girls. I should probably start meeting new people. I told myself. I was never very good at that sort of thing though. Making a good first impression that is. I wasn't as pretty as some of the girls at Canterwood, and boys didn't pay attention to me. I didn't jump 4 feet like the other riders, but I was fine with jumping under 3 feet. I heard the hooves of another horse clicking sharply on the ground, and I turned around to see who it was.

I carefully lead Snow White my stunning white Andalusian mare back to her stall I was covered in dirt and right wrist was bandaged as well as my hands, knees and left ankle. I'd taken a nasty fall from Snow Whit while doing a triple combination jump. I hobbled down the hallway I smiled weakly to a girl as slowed down so I could readjust my position i'd refused to let some stranger to put Snow White away so here I was putting her away even when I wasn't going to be able to ride for a month.
Snowy snorted and flattened her ears at the other horse I shook my head and said, "Snowy! Be nice! come seriously you can't even look at another horse without not liking them. I readjusted my grip on her light sky blue lead line a kind person had helped my untack Snowy and they were putting my tack away for while I put her back in her stall.
I was still standing in the same spot thinking. I blushed as I realized this I just tried to hobble forwards but almost lost my balance and lucky I grabbed Snowy's mane with my good hand before I fell over and hurt myself even more then I already was hurt.

My shoulder length blonde hair was in a neat French braid. I had applied a thin coat if nude lipstick and a little mascara. My red V-neck shirt showed just enough cleavage. My black breeches where tight and not the most comfortable thing but I learned to deal. I slowly walked towards Spirit's stall, my grey Hanoverian mare. As I approached her stall I saw a girl across the aisle with her horse. "Hi." I said slipping Spirit's purple halter over her ears and clipping the matching lead line on it. I lead her out of the stall and tied her up to the cross ties I front of her stall. I took out her grooming kit and got to work. She was mostly clean due to her daily grooming sessions done by the stable hands, but their was the odd piece if hay or dirt on her gleaming coat.

"Hi." I said to the girl, slightly awkwardly. After all, she was dressed like someone on the cover of dover saddlery, and here I was, tired and dirty. "Are you alright?" I asked the boy, who looked awful. He was bandaged up like a boxer. He must have fallen off his horse. It happened sometimes. I recalled the time I had fallen onto a fence. My leg had swelled up so badly I couldn't put my riding boots on for a week. Not that that stopped me from riding. Very painfully I might add.
Sammie had been in Midnight’s stall since 6AM. She didn’t know why, but something had brought her here. She felt she had to be with Midnight, and she’d been grooming him like crazy until she heard a few people walk in. Great, the morning rush. She looked Midnight over- her 17hh, shiny black thoroughbred shone, his hooves gleaming and his mane tangle-free and soft. His eyes were bright, sparkling and perky and his thick white blaze was almost blindingly white. He looked gorgeous, and so did Sammie, even for someone who’d been up for hours since early in the morning. Even when she’d left her dorm this morning, it had been almost pitch black outside and the air had been painfully chilly, pinching and nipping at her soft skin. She wore her brand new Dover breeches, pale plum with soft beige leather strips, tall, shiny black paddock boots that matched Middie’s coat, and a black designer jacket from Barney’s to match them as well. Her makeup, she had to admit, wasn’t as nice as it usually was- just a coat of pale raspberry vanilla Lip Smacker, a swipe of gold tint mascara and deep blue studs in her ears. She was planning to ride, but she wanted to wait until someone else came to see if they wanted to go with her. The CCA rings, fields and campus were almost eerie when you’re all alone, and Sammie had to admit she was a little scared. Sammie smiled when she saw Kate come in. She started to unlatch the stall door to go say hi, when two other blooming people came in. ugh. Some dude who everyone seemed to find annoying, followed by another girl she’d never seen, with blond hair and way too-dressy clothing. Sammie tossed her platinum blond hair, shot a small, pretty smile at the new girl, and then strode confidently over to Kate. “Hey!”

A blonde girl walked in quickly flashing me a smile. She had that look, the look that screamed I`m populare! But your never supposed to judge a book by its cover so whi am I judging? sighed and flicked some dust off of Spirits grey coat. I throw all my attention into grooming Spirit. After a couple miutes her already clean coat shone. I clicked my tongue and squeezed her hoof asking her to lift it so i could pick all the dirt, sand and rocks out. The first hoof only had a couple little rocks and the other hoofs where dirt free. I glanced at the other girls and the guy. I just then noticed he was all bandeged up. I wondered if he had fallen off his horse. the first time I had fallen off was when my horse had spooked at a turkey. The horse at the time was only 4 years old and 14 hands tall so I didn`t get hurt but it took awhile to catch the him.
