The Rambo Tales: Golden Snowflake

A series of books i am writing about me and my sister, a horse i really want (Rambo) and my sisters dream horse (Coco).

"Golden Snowflake" is about a girl called Gemma learning to ride on a welsh pony called Snowflake


16. Chapter 16- The Big Day

A week after the competition, and it was time for the new horses and ponies arrival. They were all excited. Amy had given them extra duties to do that morning so that they were 100% prepared. Gemma's jobs were to muck out all the stables and put in fresh hay. Emily's job was to take the empty hay nets and put fresh hay in them. Then, all together they brushed their horses and spent some time with them.


About an hour later, they had nothing left to do and it was still two hours until the new horses and ponies would arrive.


They didn't know much about their new horses and ponies. They only knew that one was a  small miniature Shetland pony, one was a medium sized pony, and one was a very big horse. They knew that they were trained to be ridden, and they came with the right sized saddles and bridles, with saddle clothes as well. They only knew what one of the breeds were, and they definitely did not know what gender they were.


Gemma, Amy and Emily were bored, still waiting for the new horse and ponies arrival. Then Amy had an idea. " I think we should go on a hack with the horses we have now for half an hour, we haven't spent very much time with them since the competition and Rambo could do with going for a ride". Gemma and Emily agreed.


Whilst Gemma and Emily finished doing their stable duties, Amy tacked up their horses for them. Rambo was excited, and so was Snowflake and Coco. Emily finished her duties first, and Amy boosted her onto Coco. Coco would usually wonder off for fresh grass, but this time she didn't. She stood still, with the odd head shake. Emily hugged her and patted her. Then Gemma came out and mounted Snowflake. Amy sorted out their stirrups and sorted out her stirrups, then she mounted Rambo and he stood still whilst she got ready. "I'll go in front, Emily you go behind me then Gemma go behind Emily. We don't want Rambo and Snowflake trying to have a competition about god knows what do we?" Amy said, patting Rambos neck. "No we definitely don't whilst we are on the road." Said gemma, leaning next to Snowflakes ear whilst she said it. Then, slowly, one by one, they walked off on their hack.
