My Friend's New Horse by Sarah

by Embrace Country Life on 12/29/13

Yesterday my friend, Rose got a new horse. Rose had sold her old horse, Jaine because she was way too much to handle. After a couple months of searching for the right horse, Rose found just the right one…Tara. Tara is around a 15 hand thoroughbred off-track horse.  She’s 8 yrs old and used to run in races.  We think that the reason she didn’t make it in the big races is because she had small legs, so she’s probably slower than the other race horses.

                  On the day that Rose got Tara, she first came up to our house with Preston, who used his truck to hook up our trailer to get the horse with.  When they left, my sister, Alicia and I got up and ate breakfast. Once they came back we were over at their barn waiting for Tara’s arrival.  After Tara met their other horse, Violet, Rose decided to ride her new horse. Alicia and I watched Rose and her sister, Frankie ride Tara and Violet for a while then we decided to get our horses, Sassy and Flash to ride with them. During the ride Flash got to meet Tara. He didn’t care at all, they nudged noses then walked away. We were outside for a total of 6 hours! Tara is doing amazing and so is Violet with her new friend! J
