Takes Your Breath Away...

Post  Miabec on Fri Mar 20, 2009 5:14 am

You see a young mare slowly cantering around the school. Her canter is so elevated, it looks like she is flying. Reading the small brass nameplate on the side of her bridle you see her name is Melody. She breezes past you, taking you breath away!

The girl riding her brings her up to a halt, straight from canter. Her mne flows with the movement. The aids are invisible as she strides gently to the exit of the school, and into the stables.

Later, you are watching her out in the paddock. She looks so alive as she prances around, impressing the stallions!

Melody is in the characters forum. Read about her there.

Vision trots in after Melody. Currently, Melody and herself were the only ones in the enclosed arena. Vision was asked to round up with a jerk. She eyed Melody out of the corner of her eye. She had never seen such a graceful animal. Every step was like stepping on the most delicate piece of cloud. Vision picked up a trot and glided a 20m circle. She could not round up any more unless she was being asked to jam her head. S?he lay her ears back listening to the complaints her rider was making.

"Get a move on!" The rider called impatiently. Vision was getting rather annoyed as the rider was kicking at the same time as pulling on the reins preferably to round her up.

Melody eyes Vision with grace. Hes not that bad, she thought... he shows potential. She throws her head above the bit and pigroots. She seems graceful, but her temper is a disaster..

Vision saw Melody eyeing her suspiciously. Vision was furious that her rider was so rough with her on this particular day. Next she was being asked to canter. Yet, she was still asked to round up even more. If she is, Vision will not be able to take it much longer..

As soon as Vision was asked to canter, that was it. Vision had had enough. She leaped up in fury tossing her rider off. She galloped around the arena wildly with her reins dangling on her martingale. She turned around to see if her rider was actually okay. She found that she was in fact chasing after her. Vision thought cheekily, "fat chance you'll catch me!". She got faster and faster circling around the arena. She started to jump the jumps that had already been set up. She leaped more than jumped. She was not sure what she should do next... Attempt to jump the gate maybe? No, something that would really set the mood. She decided to run her priceless saddle into the sandstone walls. She could hear it scraping. She knew that she had done her job, and she knew for sure that she was going to get zero praise.

Just as Vision is running wildly around the arena Jezebel trots slowly into the arena. She see's what Vision is doing and starts to freak out! While doing this her owner is trying to settle her without falling off but there in no luck. Her rider falls off and Jezebel starts to back up. She steps on her riders leg are hears it break. Jezebel turns and starts galloping away, afraid of all the noise in the arena.

There was so much commotion. Vision was running out of steam. She slowed to a controlled canter and saw that the front gate was open. She turned here and there, but decided she wanted to go for a little wonder. A few steps before she got out the arena, the gate slammed shut. She had no time to stop. She prepared the 1.45m fence. She gathered herself up as any horse would have done with a rider on her back. Unfortunately, this was the first time she had -ever- jumped. She leapt over the gate. Her legs spread out, trying to avoid the sharp edge of the gate. She landed with a thump, but all the same, she had cleared it. All you could hear now was the fast hoofbeats of a loose horse.

Jezebel looked behind to see Vision jump the fence. Her owner had disappeared off the ground. She wondered if she had hurt her own rider but she had never acted like this before. Jezebel was scared that she wouldn't have a rider. She slowed down into a walk but would not stop for anything. 'I might return to my stall' Thought Jezebel wondering what would happen then.

Melody is angry. She sees what Jezabel is doing and trots over to comfort her, her rider giving her a free rein. She isnt treated as badly as most people think, but there are certian horses in her world that make her angry. espite her kindly nature, Melody is not taking nicely to Vision. Jezabel seems like a nice horse though, her Lusitano mane flowing down her neck... Her rider dismounts. She wants to go over and help the fallen rider, but Melody has other ideas. She charges at Vision, Her movents graceful even in determination. Her strong hooves strike out, missing Vision but colliding with a jump wing. Her tangled reins get caught in the wing as it falls to the ground and it causes her to fall, bringing up a cloud of dust. She jumps up and trys to run, dragging the wing with her. Annoyed, her powerful legs kick again, destroying the wing. She walks placidly as if nothing has happened over to her rider and Visions ingured owner.

By this time Vision had slowed to a walk. That jump had taken up all of her energy. She was slightly surprised she cleared it, knowing there was a fifty percent chance that she would have fallen quite dramatically. She turned around to look back towards the indoor arena. She only heard distant neighs. What was so exciting about galloping away anyway? It didn't accomplish anything. She just wishes her rider wouldn't jerk her head to round up. Why not just do it the natural way those dressage riders do it. Vision was upset and confused.

Melody wasnt in the best shape, so her rider came over and checked her. Running her hands down her legs, there were no splints or bumps that would cause harm. she seemed uninjured, adn impatiant. Her rider took off her saddle and stretched her legs. She vaulted on and rode her around on a long rein. Her natural training showed.

Vision decided it was probably best to head back into the arena. She pawed the ground and let out a piercing whinny that all horses of the farm could obviously hear, since she got many many replies. She headed back towards the arena. She saw a human coming racing towards her yelling and waving their hands. Vision got quite a shock because she did not know what they were doing. She backed up and broke into a lope towards the round arena.

Jezebel turns around as she hears the peircing whinny Vision let out. Something seems wrong she thought. She rushed back to see what had happened in a full on gallop. When she got to the Arena she saw that Melody had broken one of the jumps. Melody's rider was looking over her slowly to check if everything was alright. Jezebel walked slowly into the arena to see if anything else had happened. "Is it always like this in the arena" She thought. Just then she saw her rider on the strecher with a broken leg remember that she had steped on it when she through her off. Jezebel trots over to her rider nuzzling her softly on the arm. "It's ok Jez, I am fine. I will be back in no time to ride you again." Her rider told her. They took her away from me. Just like that. Jezebel put her head down trying to figure out what to do.

Vision was not a threat sort of horse. She would just threat back, and she always meant it. The human came closer to her now in a walk, but still waving their hands about the whole place. She was a few meters away from Vision until Vision had given her her last warning. She reared up threateningly and lashed out at the human. She ran straight past her knowing she had knocked the human over. Vision was definitely not the mean sort, but she was delicate and sensitive. Everyone knows that they should not get to her sensitive side. Vision trotted calmly back into the arena. She looked at the remaining horses and the 2 humans lying stiff on the ground. She saw her rider motionless. She lowered her head to get a better look. By this time, she wished she hadn't...

Jezebel trots over to Vision wondering if she is ok. "Are you alright?" Jez asked Vision. She looked around all the chaos and couldn't see her owner anymore. She sighed in disappointment.

Vision nodded non-energetically. Vision too looked at the chaos that surrounded them both. "And this is my doing..."

Jezebel looked at Vision "Don't feel to bad about yourself, any horse could have done this." She tried to cheer Vision up. She tried to think of what to say next...

Vision couldn't do anything. Why couldn't she change the past? You can change the future can't you? Vision stood in the corner of the arena warning everyone and everything to stay clear of her.

Jezebel looked at her curiously wondering why she wouldn't let anything near her. She took a few steps foward to be closer to Vision. She stopped incase Vision would do something. She just kept starring at her. What was she thinking? Was she going to do anything? If so what would she do? Jez just stood there looking at Vision.

Vision glared at Jez. She thought to herself, "I don't belong here, I really don't..." Vision pawed the ground and lay down on her side. The stirrups her piercing her stomach, but she did not care anymore. She saw humans coming around the corner of the arena with a tranquiliser in their hand. Vision set her head down and sighed.

Jezebel walked over to Vision and nudged her with her nose. "Get up! Come on... you have to get up!" Jez whinnied loudly as she saw the humans. They came running over...

Vision raised her head and then let it down again. Was this it? Was Vision just going to give up and let them take her away? Never! Vision got that exciting look back in her eye. Of course, the humans had not noticed. Vision had already developed a plan. She made it obvious to Jezebel that everything was going to be fine. She shook her nose and set it back down on the sand.

When Vision gave Jez a sign that everything would be fine she settled down. She knew Vision had a plan.

Melody's rider turned her around to see what all the horses were doing. Mel was wary of Vision, so kept behind Jez, telling her that this was the first time something ahd gone wrong.

Jezebel noticed a horse standing behind her. She turned to see who it is and didn't notice the mare. She hadn't seen this horse in all the choas that had happened. The horse looked friendly. She kept on looking at the mare wondering what to do or if the mare would do anything. Jez just stood there eyeing the other horse out.

The human came closer and closer to Vision with the tranquilizer. Vision looking lifeless. As the rider lightly touched her with their hand, Vision leaped up in the air onto the rider. Not injuring them, but making it clear that she was not a mare to be trifled with. She was on all fours and had that exciting look back in her eye. She looked towards Jez and Mel. "What shall we do now?" she nickered excitedly.
