I rode at Barnston for 2 years!At pony club there was a private lesson with half the barn and we had 16 horses with the other half.It was at christmas.All the horses were getting ready to go to sleep all warmed up with there rugs on.Then we open there stable doors and tack them up!I was on lucy.My mum was helping with Saxon.When i took Lucy in i turned her by Jodie.Then Alfie wanted to get past.So being kind I turned Lucy round to let him throw.Thats when it all went wrong.Lucy reared up!Some how i dont know how but pinched Jodie which Jodie reared up me and the girl on Jodie made a run for it.Jodie kicked Misty!Misty was not happy.So she bit Jodie.So every one made a run for it.Jodie kicked Misty bit Danny!Then all the horses went crazy!So we ran into a corner.Then the horses charged at us.So then they opened the gate we ran out of the gate.Thankfully no one was hurt.The stable hands grabbed the horses.We got called in one at a time.We still had half the barn with 16 horses.When we got on we were all shaking with fear.We started to walk around.John was yelling horses distance.How can we have horses distance with 16 horses and half the barn?Finally the privet lesson finished.We got split into 2 groups.About 5 minis later Sasha bucked.The girl on Sasha fell off head first!So we went back to one big ride.John put out cones we had to trot throw them.Every horse was Perfect , but when it came to me and Lucy she shot off at a gallop!At 1 point Misty went then before John told us to go Lucy shot off!When we caught up with Misty he started to gallop.The person on Misty was very scared as was i.I was glad when the lesson finished.I didnt want to un-saddle her so my mum did it.We took the tack back to the tack room.On the way out we met Michaela.My mum told her we didnt put her rug on because we didnt know how.She told us she would do it for us.When we got in the car i was very shaken up.After that scary ride.Barnston use to be a great stables.Over the years it as changed.I am not as keen on it as i was when i first started.Let me warn you beware of Misty who bites and Lucy who went crazy with me.I now ride at wirral riing school.All the ponies are nice.
