I had a riding lesson today and it went very well. My mum is teaching me and we borrow a pony called Poppy. Last week Poppy was in a very bad mood and she was very naughty and chucked me off. I had my body armour on so it was o.k. when I fell off in the sand school. I was a bit nervous today because I thought she might be bad again but I was told that I had to get the better of her and not to let her boss me about. Ponies know if you are nervous and they take advantage of it so I was determined. It worked and she was as good as gold. I feel a lot better now . She looks like butter wouldn’t melt in this pic.
