Crooked Tree Path

I haven't really written before so this is kind of an experiment. It needs to be revised and I'm sure changed, but here is very rough draft. Tell me if I should continue!

"Whoa, Cinder. Take it easy." kate didn't understand why her horse acted so odd around this part of the woods. They had just started riding down this path a few weeks ago, and every time they came to this part, Cinder would become very alert and nervous. Kate knew there hadn't been any reports of animal attacks, and other people rode this path all the time. It was a mystery that would go on for another month.
************************************************** ********
Kate was a typical sixteen year old. She lived in Greensburg, Iowa and went to a small high school. Her mother and father had divorced when she was too young to remember, and ever since it's been just her and her mother and her horse, Cinder.
Kate's mother bought Cinder for her twelfth birthday. He was a seven year old Quarter horse mix. She bought him from an older lady who didn't have time for him anymore. His name was Spark, or Flame, or whatever the lady decided to call him that day. So Kate named him Cinder, and the name stuck.
Kate and Cinder went riding whenever she had time. After school or after work, and almost every weekend. They lived in a rural area, so there were lots of woods and already worn trails for them to explore. At first, they would never venture too far from home but as they grew to trust each other, they went for farther and longer rides. And once they started going down new paths, especially the "crooked tree path" (there was an oddly shaped tree, so the path got it's name) Cinder had been acting differently. Almost as if he was looking for something....Or someone.
