by HorseFeathers, age 17 Mum says there is a time in every girl’s life when she has to take responsibility and learn how to drive. Yeah Right. You won’t see me getting into one of those rolling bombs. Wild horses couldn’t even drag me close enough. Well, they could, but that’s beside the point. See, I live near the small country town of Celeena, Ohio. Nothing ever happens here… nothing. I mean, the community’s idea of a good time is a game of “corn hole” or “hillbilly golf.”

War of the Wild Horse Band

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on March 1, 2011, 1:00 pm


by XDDXDD, age 11 As the first wild horse took step on the land, They paired with Natives, hand in hand. Then the French came, the British, and the Spanish And shot missiles through the air, thinking the wild horse would vanish. But each fire made them stronger, stronger than before And their bravery was something even the Europeans would adore. And the horses ran through the valley, With their hoofs like the sound of a million drums, It was music to ears, like guitar strums. The horses made the

A Bond That’s Hard To Break

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on February 24, 2011, 1:00 pm


by Luna Digro, age 14 The bond between horses and humans is strong. It’s hard to break, even when something goes wrong. The connection is special; it can’t really be explained. It lasts through many hardships, challenges, and pains. God gave us that friendship, so we should cherish it more. Please don’t make that bond between people and horses perish.

The Last TIme

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on February 20, 2011, 4:18 pm


by Peanut, age 10 The worst pain comes not from goodbye, But the terrible pain that comes in your heart after it. It’s the memory of that dreaded moment when you are alone, And are forced to say I love you one last time. It’s after you have left, And are left only with memories. It’s when you feel like when he’s gone he left with your dreams, And a large chunk of your heart. It’s the ripping pain in your chest when you remember the last time… It’s the memory

Such Heaven

by ddog777, age 13 Such heaven it is to be with you, As we ride over the tide. Cool wind whips my mane into your face, Stinging your cheeks. You laugh as you urge me over the tide. I wear no saddle or bridle, And you no whips or spurs. We ride into the sunset, horse and girl, as a team, as friends, as companions. Such heaven.
