What would you find in a horse crazy girl’s diary? I’m Emily, and this is my horse crazy diary…
Dear diary, (I feel awkward writing that, but whatever.)
I just got this diary a week ago, for my birthday. So I decided to give it a try! I feel a bit weird writing “dear diary” in the beginning, because it’s kinda weird to be talking to a piece of paper, but mom said that I’ll get used to it (who knows when that is!). But here is a little bit about myself. I am 14 (since last week) and I live in Kentucky. I ride at a stable here that is called “The Pine’s Stable.” I love horses. I mean, I LOVE HORSES! Sorry, I’m writing with a pen so I can’t erase my mistakes (which that was a HUGE mistake!). I have a little sister (better than a brother) and she is only 3. I really hope that she grows to be horse crazy, as that would be amazing. Horses are my life. I don’t have many horse crazy friends, so I’m a bit lonely in the horse world. Horses are my best friend! I ride a horse named Dreamer. She is a chestnut Arabian. I love her soooo much!! We are best friends! We just had a riding lesson together yesterday, and my riding instructor says we make a great team! That’s all for today.

Dear diary, (I still feel awkward saying that.)
I didn’t feel like writing yesterday so here I am today. But I can always talk about horses. Nothing much going on, that’s why I’m pretty bored right now. The only reason why I am writing right now is because I’m bored. But anyway, tomorrow I’m going to a sleepover at my friend Amber’s house. She rides at my stable, so that’s what I know her from. We are good friends, I would say. Well, better get packing.

Dear diary, (Eh…still awkward.)
I just got back last night from the sleepover and it was so fun! We stayed up until 1 o’clock in the morning! We watched a movie and had popcorn! It was a horse movie, and we played (I know… I’m 14, but I can still “play”) with her model horses!! She has A. LOT. I wish I had so many! I do have a lot, but she has A LOT compared to me. We played games, talked about horses, did some girl talk, and so much more! I am going to my next lesson today, and I’ll tell you about it once I get back. Got to go.

Dear diary, (Whatever.)
The lesson went great yesterday!! I learned to canter, and did some balancing tricks. Amber did great too! It was really fun!! I guess writing in a diary isn’t too bad… as long as I write about horses that is! My room has horse posters all over it, and I like (I mean love) to draw horses, so my walls have a lot of drawings of horses on them. I’m glad that this diary has a picture of a horse on the cover! I really like it. My aunt got it for me. I am glad she did too! She could have gotten me something for drawing, or another book, but she got me a diary! I’m actually kinda liking this! Got to go eat breakfast.

Dear diary, (I’m used to it.)
I don’t feel awkward anymore writing “dear diary!” I guess it’s more normal now. But anyway, I want to start show jumping on Dreamer! I asked mom and she said that it would be okay. I don’t think that is actually what she thinks though! It looks fun to me! Mom probably thinks it’s to dangerous… and I don’t even want to know what dad would say about it! Amber already has decided that she is going to do show jumping on her horse, and I think that I could do it too! I will keep writing in this diary for sure! But for now, that’s all!
