I was 14 and on German exchange trip. One of the reasons me and my penfriend got on so well was because I was horse mad and she had her own pony. I'd never known anyone with their own before so was very impressed.
She took me to see him and helped me get on. I'd never been on a horse before and the language barrier meant that she didn't quite understand what I was trying to say. She slapped him and he headed off into some trees. The branches were low and I had to almost lie down flat to avoid them.
Then something must have spooked him because he started running, fast. I wasn't sure what to hold onto, I thought I'd hurt him if I held onto his mane but there was nothing else.
I could hear my penfriend laughing and Iäve never been so scared in my life. I'd also never felt so excited either.
Needless to say, the penfriend relationship didn't last but I've since mastered the art of riding a horse without screaming at the top of my voice
Tell us about the first pony that stole your heart!
