Allison and Tyler

One summer day my best friend asked if I would like to go with her to her to her riding lesson. I said yes because I hadn't really seen a horse before. When we got there I saw Shooter a palomino and absolutely fell in love.One summer day my best friend asked if I would like to go with her to her to her riding lesson.

I’m in love ….
One summer day my best friend asked if I would like to go with her to her to her riding lesson. I said yes because I hadn’t really seen a horse before. When we got there I saw Shooter a palomino and absolutely fell in love.

Every day I came out with her and gave Shooter tons of carrots. My friend had a birthday party and I got to ride DJ. The barn soon shut down and I begged my mom for lessons anywhere. It took three years but it worked. The summer of 2001 I started riding lessons and guess what?

I’m in love again. I’ve fallen in love with a tall bay Thoroughbred, Tyler. I’ve only trotted him twice but he has wonderful manners. One day I hope to own a horse. But I’m only 12 and we can’t afford one. So I keep praying in hope.
