Yesterday was the most terrible and tragic day ever! I was at a wonderful horse show, the Knoxville County one. I practiced day and night on my horse Aster. She was a wonder to ride, with gaits as smooth as the ocean waves. So I rode her when it was finally the day to compete against other competitors that are my age. I entered seven classes to ride in and hopefully win in, and indeed, I did win! But when I led her back to her stall, and came back, she disappeared… My thoughts were: how could she just disappear?
