Once upon a time, there was a pretty grey pony. The pretty grey pony lived in a big sta ble with lots of other ponies. Her favourite things in the world were playing with her friends, and jumping over big obstacles!
One sunny Friday morning, she was let out into the pasture with all of her friends. They were all delighted! They rolled in the grass. They rolled in the sand. They chased each other around the field. They scratched each other’s backs. They ate the pretty flowers… Basically they did all the things happy ponies do, and they had a blast doing it!
What the pretty grey pony did not know was that the next day she would be going to a big competition with her favorite human and some other friends. If she had known that she might have… Hm, no, let’s be honest, she wouldn’t have done anything differently anyway! But the humans were not happy with the way she looked after her awesome day in the field. Her pretty light grey coat now had patches of green, brown, yellow…. The humans could not believe she had managed to get this dirty in just one day.
Suddenly, the pretty grey pony found herself tied up in a wash stall. She didn’t mind this much. After all, it’s not every day you get three humans working vigorously to make you look pretty! They scrubbed her whole body with shampoo, untangled her tail and put it in a bucket to shampoo it too, they even scrubbed her hooves! The pretty grey pony was delighted with all the attention she was getting!
After she had been cleaned, the pretty grey pony got a blanket put on. And we’re not talking any old blanket. This one covered her neck and even her head. Not only that, but her legs were wrapped up over the hocks and knees, and even her tail was wrapped! The pretty grey pony was somewhat puzzled over all this, and looked at her favourite human, trying to get some answers to what was going on.
“There!” her human said, “Now try and make a mess of yourself if you can!”

Molly could not understand why she was so nervous. She had been to tons of shows before, so why on earth would this one be any different? After twisting and turning her own thoughts, the only thing she could think of was that her mother was the SCF pony team supervisor today. After all, her mother hadn’t been in charge at one of their competitions for over two years. That was usually Evelyn’s job. Logically, Molly realized there was no reason for this feeling, but logic did not have much say in the matter.
Having figured out the cause, however, did not do much to steady her nerves. She fumbled so much tacking up, Robin and Taylor stepped in to help her. Normally, she could get on a horse by just making a leap from the ground, but today she needed a leg-up. Pippi had picked up on the nervous vibes before, but now with Molly on her back it became so much more obvious. Everyone stared as Pippi took off in some horsie-version of a tap-dance rather than a walk.
Being a pretty experienced rider, Molly immediately realized what was going on. She tried her best to relax, and at least managed to relax her arms and legs. Her core, however, was still tensed up. At least this got Pippi to walk normally, but the pony was still on edge and trying to figure out what was worrying her rider.
Suddenly, there was a loud cry from the stands at the end of the arena. This spooked the two ponies that were closest, who took off running for their lives. Pippi thought this was the disaster Molly had been preparing for, did a 180 that would have made any working cow horse proud, and took off. Molly, who had been unwisely focused on going through the course in her mind, was not paying enough attention to the actual world around her. This paired with her tense seat meant she came off in a heartbeat, and hit the ground before she even realized she was off the pony.
In her seven years of life, Pippi had never dropped a human before. The sudden sensation of an empty saddle made her come to her senses. She stopped, and pondered the situation for a moment. That was no scary monster, it was just one of those noisy tiny humans! Having figured this mystery out, it was time to solve the one involving the sudden disappearance of her human. She turned around, and spotted Molly sitting there in the dirt. Pippi walked up to Molly, lowered her head and made a puzzled face.
Molly burst out laughing. “Thanks” she said, “you knocked all the butterflies out of my stomach”.
Pippi of course did not understand the word-meaning of this, but she did understand that Molly was happy. This was progress! She watched as Molly came to her feat, brushed the dirt off her breaches as best she could, and tossed a glance towards the entrance. Molly let out a sigh of relief, realizing her mother had decided to spare what was left of her dignity by not rushing up to help. Oh well, the day should get better from here on.
