From Bethlehem Primary School.
When I go horse riding I feel excited. When I get to horse riding I run straight into the changing room and get changed into my trousers, put my boots on and helmet.
I go straight into where all the horses are and wait for the lady to come; we go with our leaders and hold the rope next to them. We take the horses for warm ups around the big shed. Then we go to where we hop on our horses, I hop on Sapphire and give her a hug. I go around the shed again while I’m on Sapphire.
We all wait in a line and once we go out the door we yell out “Horse coming through” because someone might walk in front of the horses and get hurt.
We go outside and do games and races also trotting, we also go for walks, like up and down hills, down long road in paddocks and fields. After we finish, we always help take things off the horses and brush them down and feed them. Every time I feed Sapphire, I hide it behind my back. But she still knows that I have got it, I once fed her two big apples and a carrot. She likes fejoas also. She always gives me a smile when I feed her. Thank you Mrs Rauputu and Mrs Harding, I feel amazing!

On questioning Shaye about Riding and how he feels, the instant reply came –
“My frown has been turned upside down.”
