Take Me for a Jump!
By Colleen Messina
  

1     I am in my pen with my best friend, Ruthie. Ruthie is gorgeous. She has a tan coat and the longest ears I have ever seen. I heard The People say that she is a donkey. Maybe that is a special kind of horse? Do you know? Anyway, we munch hay together. She is my best friend besides My Girl. Oh, maybe you are wondering what my name is? My name is Cisco. I am a horse.
 
2     Here comes My Girl now. She pats my nose. She puts a halter on my head. She leads me to the barn. Then she takes out her basket of brushes and begins to go over my shiny chestnut coat. She uses a softer brush on my face. She likes to make the white blaze on my forehead look clean. It feels so good when she combs my mane. Sometimes, she even braids it. I love when she picks out my feet. My hooves are full of mud. It has been raining a lot lately!
 
3     My Girl puts a pad on my back. Then, she puts my saddle on. Oh, good! We are going for a ride. She tightens my girth. This is the band that goes under my tummy. I puff out my stomach so that she can't tighten it too much. She knows a trick so that she can get it tighter. She makes me run around her in a circle on a line. Then when I stop, she can tighten the girth even more. Oh, well.
