Since I saw my first horse at the fair when I was four, (I am eleven now) I have always loved them. I beg my parents to take me anywhere there are horses. My room is full of horse stuff, horse pillows, horse blankets, horse posters, horse t-shirts and horse hats. Although I do take horse riding lessons, I do not own a horse. We travel a lot with my Dad's work, and he says that it would not be fair to own a horse if we could not five it our full attention. So, I am waiting on the day when my Dad’s job changes and we can get our own horse.
For now, I just find horses anywhere that I am and also play a lot of virtual horse games. They are fun and help keep me plugged in to the horse world. I can own as many horses as I want with my virtual games and have learned a lot about choosing and caring for a horse. Here are the top ten reasons why I love horses. If you love horses too I am sure that you will agree with at least a few of these.
1They are pretty: I have never seen another animal that I think is as pretty as a horse. They have beautiful, dark eyes, long eyelashes and their hair is out of this world. Their colors are awesome, and the way their coat shines in the sun is beautiful. When they trot or gallop their mane blows in the wind, and they look very majestic.
2They are graceful: Even though horses are very big they are very graceful. The way they can jump and go between very tight spots. They lift their head high and can walk very softly if they have to. Even when they lie down and get back up they are graceful.
3They are fast: There is nothing more fun than making your horse go fast or watching horses when they run fast. They scoot around corners and fly through the field. My favorite virtual horse games are ones where I can make my horse run really fast through miles of trails.
4They are strong: Even the smallest ponies are very, very strong. I have learned in the virtual horse world that all horses are built for some type of job, and they develop very strong muscles to help them with this job.
5They are loyal: When you treat a horse with respect it will respect you back and be your friend. The horses at my riding stable all run to greet me when I come because they know who I am. The more time you spend with your horse, the more loyal it will be.
6They are good teachers: Any horse that I have spent time with has taught me something. Mostly what I have learned from horses is how to be patient, and this is a good thing.
7They are smart: Don’t ever let anyone tell you that a horse is not smart. I have seen horses learn to do some really amazing things. I have even seen a horse play soccer before it was really amazing.
8They are fun: Although it takes hard work to look after a horse, even when I play online virtual horse games, horses are a lot of fun. All of the work is worth it when you can hop on and ride and even teach your horse how to do tricks.
9They are my friends: Sometimes when I don’t feel like playing with my friends from school or in the neighborhood, it is just fun to play online horse games or go visit some real horses. They are really good friends, and I just like spending time with them. They don’t bicker or make me feel sad, I am always happy when I am around horses.
10They always listen to me: I can stand at the fence with a horse and talk for hours. I don’t usually do that, but if I did, I know that they would listen to me. They act as if they can understand me and just sit patiently while I talk. Them seem to understand how I feel all the time.
