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


6. Chapter 6- Jumping Lessons

The next weekend Gemma was back for her first jumping lesson.

Snowflake was Sparkling clean. Emily had got up early that morning especially so she was even more beautiful than normal when Gemma came. 

"Morning Rambo" Amy said walking into his stable. Rambo whinnied, and Amy hugged him. "i know, i haven't ridden you for a week, but i promise i'll ride you later!" Amy told him. His face lit up as if he had been eating glow in the dark carrots! Amy put Rambo in the field and saw that Emily was taking Coco to the paddock. They met and the paddock and let their horses go and graze.

"Emily, you can't jump can you?" Amy asked, with an idea in mind. Emily shook her head. "Rambo hasn't been exercised for a while, has he?". Emily shook her head. "Do you want to join in the jumping lesson with Gemma and Snowflake today?On Rambo?" Amy asked, hoping that Emily would say yes. And she did. "good! Coco can stay in the paddock. i'll tie Rambo and Snowflake up while you get his tack. Emily shot off faster than a car on the motorway to the tack room.

Amy put on Rambo's tack and helped Emily on. She sorted out the stirrups and told him to calm down a bit. Emily gave him a hug just as Gemma arrived. Amy helped Gemma on and made sure the stirrups were fine. "its going to be a bit harder because you are both having Jumping lessons today, but Snowflake and Rambo are always up for the challenge!". The two horses looked at each other, just before Amy untied them and walked them to the sand school. She took off Snowflakes lead first, then Rambo's, giving him a pat on the bum as he walked past. 

In the School was two columns of Cavalier jumps, with two in each. "here is what you are going to do. You are both going to go over the jumps, leaning forward as you do so. When you have jumped the second jump, you will guide your horse or pony to the right, then stand back here until i tell you what to do next." 

"Do you both understand?" Amy asked. There was silence. Emily and Gemma nodded. Then so did Snowflake and Rambo. The girls giggles. "Gemma, when i have led Emily over the first one, if you feel confident enough you can go over yours. 

Emily went over her jumps, then Gemma went over hers too. Then they went over them without being led.

"Time for a little . . . Race!" Amy said. As soon as 'Race' came out her mouth, Rambo looked at Snowflake. They were both very eager to win. "you will both go three times over the circuit, then back again, and the first one back without hitting the poles at all will win!"
