My First Blog, My First Jump

Hello, my name is Molly. I am 15 years-old and this is my first blog. I have ridden for ten years and have thoroughly enjoyed it. My horse’s name is Spike and we have formed an amazing bond together. I have made great friends at the equestrian centre where I ride — Kelly, Kate, Leah, Rachel, Anna, Mary-Kate, my bestest friend ever Catriona, and loads more. At the stables I break in new horses and ponies, have lessons, muck out, teach lessons, lead and of course HAVE FUN!! I love it there and I am so excited for the pony camp that is coming up.

I remember my first jump. It was when I was about six or seven and I hadn’t gotten Spike yet. I was riding Zack, a 14hh dun pony. He was excellent and is still around. The jump was only a small and simple cross pole, but I have never forgotten it. I was so, so nervous, but got over it safely. I was probably the happiest little girl in the world that day.

I still jump now. I jump one metre fifty and love it. Spike (Rinne Marre, which is his show name) and I have done many shows, such as Tinahely in Ireland, The Horse of the Year, and loads more. We have not necessarily won or even placed in all of them, but in some of them we have come first and have been really proud at that.

I hope you enjoyed this blog.
