Why would a young country girl ride with two horses?
Probably not a typical post, but I really need to know something. What would a girl of about 15, on a poor farm, at midday, be doing a short distance from the stables riding a horse and having another in tow. I'm writing a book and I have some ideas, but I don't want to sound like an idiot nor do I want good horse people to drop my book in the 2nd chapter because it doesn't make sense. I'm sure that happens all the time in film and literature and I don't want to be one of those. She ends up running into someone that needs help and she takes the 2nd horse and gives up the one she was riding to the stranger and takes them out of a storm into a barn. Nice girl right? Well what was she doing with an extra horse? Thank you!
