Title: The First Ride

Trust me I’m your best friend
The smiling woman said
Just sit upon the horse dear Val, you won’t fall on your head

I climbed aboard the mighty beast
My heart was beating fast
It whinnied, tossed its head and glared
My courage didn’t last

We walked a little round the field
I clung on best I could
Shall we trot? No we shall not, I don’t think that we should.

I slithered down from off its back
My arms tight round its neck
I felt I’d like to kiss the ground, I was a total wreck.

I swear I saw a haughty sneer upon the creature’s face,
She turned and walked away from me – she’d kept me in my place.
