A few weeks ago, I went to a horse show at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo with my Percheron mare, Lacy. Naturally we were the center of attention among all of the quarter horses and appaloosas. At first people just kind of stared at us like "She is not really going to get on that horse... Is she? OMG, she is!"
Anyways, I had to climb on a railing thingy to mount her, and of course while I was in the warmup ring I dropped my glove somehow. I was waiting for my boyfriend to come back and tell me what class they were on, and I was going to ask him to pick it up for me, because there was no way I was going to get off and back on my crazy horse who was certain that the llamas 30 feet away wanted to eat her.
This little girl came up to the entrance, so I backed my horse up so she could come in, thinking she wanted to ride in there. She got off her horse, got my glove, handed it to me, then got back on her horse. It was the cutest thing ever, and it totally made my day. I don't even know where she came from or how she saw me drop it. There wasn't anyone near me that I could have asked to get it, but somehow she saw me drop my glove from wherever she was and came and got it for me.
Oh, and after the class, which we took 5th in (which is a miracle in itself, it took me a half a lap around the ring to get her to walk after they asked us to go from a trot to a walk), everybody and their brother came up and said how beautiful she is and how well we did and wanted to know everything about her.
