The day that changed my life

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Lucy Thomas words = 577 The day that changed me forever It all started off as just a normal Wednesday. I arrived at High Cross Riding School. This was the day I have my regular lesson. Rosie, a ten-year-old brown mare with a white star on her forehead, comes right up to the edge of the pen to see me. She is a very reserved, dignified old lady and I am so fond of her. The normal routine is to untwist her reins, open the gate and lead her out down to the arena. We then join the queue waiting for the previous lesson to finish.
