Need Something Fun To Do?

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on April 28, 2009, 8:10 am


by Violet Inkpen, age 12 Sometimes life can be…well dull. But there is always something fun and horsey to do! One thing you can do (if your parents let you) is take a plain white t-shirt and draw a horse on it. Then get out some paint and design your very own horse! A purple horse, a blue horse, or a normal horse! It doesn’t matter, as long as you make it your very own! You can also use this idea on a pillow case to sleep on a horse. Horse Treats: Another fun-filled activity is shaping

The Legend

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on April 27, 2009, 8:15 am


by Alexyz, age 13 A horse and girl were such good friends Until the girl was lost The horse went crazy, wild and every rider was tossed He became a legend and nicknamed Shargild He stole the farmer’s mares and was proclaimed to be wild But the seasons came and over time he lost his wild edge So the angry farmers got together And chased him to a cliff ledge The horse stopped and stared then he tossed his head and reared they ignored him and cocked there guns He snorted loudly as they neared He

Dealing With Passing

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on April 27, 2009, 8:05 am


by Peanut, age 9 We humans are born, we live, then we die. We have times of anger, grief, fear, happiness, and jealousy. Horses are different; they live a life of happiness and love, for they know one day they shall return to the place they came from — heaven. They know they must enjoy life, as one day they will leave the green grass of the fields, the heat and comfort of their little stalls, and most of all, their owner. A horse knows when its time to go. You may not know, but they will.

GHC Lyrics Competition: Entry #4

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on April 26, 2009, 11:13 pm


by Julia, age 15 Where do we go when its raining outside? When its too cold or too hot Or we don’t have horses to ride? We log online and visit our virtual home, Where ponies graze, And wild horses roam. There we meet the amazing JBs, We learn of their lives, Through all the many stories. It’s a place of inspiration, We all come together, To read and to write and have oodles of fun. Every strong herd needs a stronger lead mare, They’re usually pretty bossy so I think we lucked out, Because

Follow the Hoofbeats

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on April 26, 2009, 8:30 am


by HorseFeathers, age 16 Soft eyes. Gentle touch. Warm milk That much I can remember of my mother. Until they took her away. They stole her from me and left me to die in this forsaken wasteland. Where am I? I am here. Alone. I will find her, and I will seek them out. ********* As I stand here under the stars of the heavens each night, I remember… The first breath of life streaming into my new fragile lungs. My mother gently prodding me up onto my long, spindly legs. Nourishment. A full belly

by My Horse and Me, age 12 I wrote this letter to Bonnie Bryant the author of Horse Shy (Saddle Club #2). I entered this letter into a writing competition. Even though I didn’t win, I was chosen a semi-finalist out of 50,000 kids. I was pretty excited. I wanted to share this letter with you. Maybe, just maybe after you read this, you’ll want to read the book Horse Shy. Dear Bonnie Bryant, I recently read your book Horse Shy. It was a lovely story, and the story greatly moved me. Your

GHC Is The Place To Be

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on April 25, 2009, 9:00 am


by mustangmane, age 10 When I first saw GHC as an ad on a page, I immediately clicked on it. What else would a true horse girl do? The site seemed so fascinating, and I was attracted to it. I read stories, poetry, and blogs by these talented girls, and wanted to be like one of them. So, I started to submit stories, poetry, and blogs like everyone else was doing. If you look on my profile in MEET THE BLOGGERS, my first blog ever to get published was Is a Horse Right For You?, which explains the responsibility

A Horse Called Gulliver

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on April 24, 2009, 8:05 am


by Peanut, age 8 In a stable, warm and sweet, a little colt was born. He grew up as a school horse, yet he felt forlorn. The people came, the people left, he worked for everyone. He worked from dawn to dusk, never stopping ’till the job was done. One day his owners looked at him and said he must be sold. The sign in front of the auction stall read “Gray Arab, 14 years old.” A kind lady saw the horse and asked to see it out. The horse was led out of the stalls, a girl rode him with doubt. She

Disastrous Maiden

by Violet Inkpen, age 12 A golden colored mare narrowed her eyes at the testy young filly and nipped her flanks. “I told you not to go near the older mares,” she scolded. “But Dunlin, I only wanted to see if they really were grey around the eyes!” The foal protested. “I said NO!” Dunlin snorted. The foal sighed. “And I also told you to stay away from Bracken; that colt’s cruisin’ for a bruisin’. I’m suprised Alpha hasn’t kicked

Happy Birthday To You

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on April 23, 2009, 9:00 am


by Ginger, age 11 I watched my little cousin Kayla proudly walking on my little chestnut Roxy with her hands spread out like a airplane. She wore a huge smile on her face that was screaming “I’m doing it!” It was her sixth birthday, so I led her around on my little miniature horse Roxy. It was so nice to see Roxy being ridden again (I haven’t done that since I was about seven). My little Roxy is getting to be quite the oldie so I gave her a rest and put Kayla on Lady, my

In Memory of Silver

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on April 23, 2009, 8:30 am


by My Horse and Me, age 12 I can imagine Silver as a colt. He was probably black then. Slowly he turned into the white horse he is now. As he grew up and was broken in, I’m sure he was probably always sweet and gentle as he is now. Silver is a white horse who has been owned by the stables where I ride for a very long time. He has always been the horse that the beginners have learned to ride on. He has been at the stables longer than me. He has always been sweet and I’ve never doubted
