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


4. Chapter 4- The lessons begin

"We better get started" Amy told Gemma. "yes we had. if i want to win that show with snowflake, i might need a lot of lessons!" Gemma said, in a serious, but slightly giggly way.

"Can you walk a few times around the school please Gemma" so Gemma did. Gemma was very tensed and was clutching hold of the reins for dear life." loosen up Gemma, nothing bad will happen" Amy said, hoping her words were true. So Gemma loosened up and Snowflake carried on being good. 

"When you're ready go into sitting trot, go around the school once, then turn at C and stop infront of me please" Amy told Gemma, and she did what she was told. Amy took hold of Snowflakes bridle, so she would stay still. "Gemma, show me how to rise". Gemma done her rising. "now im going to lead you around, and i want you to do that. im going to let go half way through and you will have to keep going, got it?" Amy made sure Gemma understood what she was doing, then they started.

"trot on Snowflake" Gemma said as she gave Snowflake light leg aids. Snowflake started trotting, and Gemma carried on rising. "bring her back to walk, then tell her to halt". Gemma done exactly as she was told. "This time you are going to do it by yourself. Got it Gemma? i'll be standing in the middle helping you". Gemma started feeling a bit nervous. But she done it.

"well done Gemma! you can give Snowflake a small break now. untack her and take her to the paddock and i'll help you find your seat on the vaulting horse." Amy told Gemma, giving Snowflake a pat on the bum. Gemma dismounted Snowflake, gave her a pat then walked her to the stable and took off her tack. Then she took snowflake to the paddock and gave her some treats.
