“Go get your helmet and we will get Moonrise ready,” Scarlett told me.
I left Moonrise with them, and went to my locker. I put my riding boots on, and took my helmet with me back to the yard, where Moonrise was tacked up and ready.
I put on my helmet and mounted Moonrise. I walked her round into the indoor school and walked around the school. Mom, dad and Scarlett sat up in the gallery, watching me. “Right, you can come up into a trot now,” Scarlett said. At the letter A I went into a trot. I got Moonrise going on the bit, and did lots of circles, serpentines, and changes of reins.
When Scarlett told me I could get ready for cantering, I did sitting trot and asked for canter at C. Moonrise went into a canter and we cantered all the way around the school, before doing a 20 meter circle, staying in canter. At the letter B, I cantered across the school, and changed the rein. Moonrise changed her leg in canter so we were cantering on the right rein. After going round the school once in canter, I took Moonrise down into a trot, and then into a walk. I walked around the school while Scarlett and dad set up some jumps for me. I watched them as they sat up the jumps. There was a small crossbar, a straight bar, a bounce, and an oxer.
I got up into trot and trotted a circle, before asking for canter. I cantered over the small crossbar first. Then I turned Moonrise and went diagonally through the school, jumping the straight bar. I turned Moonrise round in the corner and just after A, I turned Moonrise down towards the other end of the school. We flew over the bounce and turned the corner at the bottom. I did a 20 meter circle and jumped the oxer. I brought Moonrise down into a trot, and then a walk. I cooled her off and then went out onto the yard, where mom and dad were. Scarlett was nowhere to be seen.
