Black Beauty – 06 Liberty

I was quite happy in my new place, and if there was one thing that I missed it must not be thought I was discontented; all who had to do with me were good and I had a light airy stable, and the best of food. What more could I want? Why, liberty! For three years and a half of my life I had had all the liberty I could wish for; but now, week after week, month after month, and no doubt year after year, I must stand up in a stable night and day except when I am wanted, and then I must be just as steady and quiet as any old horse who has worked twenty years.

As I lived some years with Squire Gordon, I may as well tell something about the place.

Pony Club Life Lesson 6: Sometimes Riders Need to Be Assertive

After my first pony, my next horse was much more high-strung and some may say a little ‘too much’ for me. He was a bit nappy and of course, each time I let him go in the direction he wanted to go, I made him worse. My first competition with him was a six-bar event. In this event, there are six jumps in a row at an equal distance with each jump higher than the previous one.
