(OOC: I have a full keyboard again! This is a continuation of my last post.)

Rubbing her back and trying to work out a spasming muscle, Izzie made her way down the barn aisle, inhaling the sweet scent of hay and horse. She paused at the first stall on the right after the tack room, and traced her fingers over the brass nameplate. Staccatta. Izzie's dark bay Dutch Warmblood was turned out for the day already. Probably terrorizing the geldings again, thought Izzie.
Trailing a finger along the smooth stall, she contined down the aisle towards the silhouettes of three students.

Madison’s eyes flashed up just as she’d finished speaking. She heard an extremely loud noise from inside the barn. A golden colored horse – she thought they were called palominos, was standing in the entryway between the open paddock and the barn twitching his ears back and forth in curiosity. It was at that point that he bounding forward kicking and making quite a ruckus.

Maddie was so surprised at the sudden movement from the big horse that she let out a gasp and nearly fell backwards off the fence she’d been sitting on. Her hands tightened as she slipped backward and she scrabbled to get a handhold that wouldn’t allow her to fall straight backward off and smack her head on the hardened grass ground behind the paddock. She could feel the wood grain burning into her hands and there was a plainly panicked look on her place as she kicked her feet, trying to get herself upright again. Finally she managed it and sat up straight again, her heart racing and her breath caught – both because of the beautiful horse in front of her and due to her close call.

Madison watched the horse and his owner who had emerged not long after all apologies for the disruption the horse had caused. She didn’t mind a bit though and she just smiled at the girl and gave a, what she hoped looked friendly, wave and didn’t say much. She tended to be a tiny bit shy around more than a couple of people at a time when she was in a new situation, though she hoped her smile was enough to make her not look quite so off-standing. She hurriedly got down off the fence and brushed her hands off on the seat of her jeans, rather embarrassed that the horse had startled her so badly she’d almost fallen off. That wouldn’t happen again if she just got down. “What’s his name?” She finally asked.

Looking over she saw a woman walking towards them who didn’t look like she was a student, but nor was she the owner of the school, whom Madison had met the previous evening. Maybe a teacher or a trainer.. “Morning.” Maddie said still a bit shyly. “I … don’t think I’ve met either of you.” She murmured to the second student – the one with the palomino and the trainer/teacher. “My name’s Madison or Maddie if you prefer. I’m new.” It felt silly since she’d just told someone that but she had the feeling she might be saying that a lot over the next few days.

Mac winced seeing the girl fall off the fence because of the geldings quick movements, she sighed slightly and put a smile on looking towards the girl before walking a little closer "Sorry he just really enjoys his turnout time" she said with a half smirk. Her eyes drift off towards the gelding watching him rumble about then back to the girl as she asks about his name "Well his registered name is Way Bueno, his barn name is Twinkie" she says calmly now with a smile on her face "and my name is Mackenna but everyone just calls me Mac, whats yours? do you have a horse here?" she asks hoping she wouldnt mind the questins. The girl stood pretty relaxed, she had dark green eyes hidden by a pair of sun glasses, long dark brown hair down to her waist, her clothes were alittle worn looking, her jeans faded in areas and torn in some otheres, her shirt just a simple white wife beater and her cowboy boots hidden under her jeans with some bumper spurs attached to them.

The gelding stays still, standing square, his head up and ears forward as he watches his owner move towards another person, he lets out a big huff of air before racing towards them and turning at the last second as he remembers theres a fence there, letting out a loud snort as he prances away from them, but prances in a circle back towards them, stopping at the fence and stretching his head and neck over towards the two girls as far as he could. He definitely was short but oh so powerful, built like a tank he definitely was quarter horse anyone could tell and his bloodlines were amazing, but also one of the reasons he's so hystrung.

Taylor walked out into the pasture to get her horse. She observed the other girls that were out there and the other horses. She stood by the gate and lat out a sharp whistle. Seconds later, a Pinto colored horse came cantering up to her. "Hi my sweet boy," she said and slipped his halter on. She had trained her horse, Trigger, from a colt and they were so in tune with each other she didn't really need a halter, but for safety reasons it was required. Taylor couldn't believe that she had been accepted into Silver Star Academy though. As they headed to the barn, she passed some girls. Taylor was naturally shy so she continued walking past them with Trigger. Trigger stopped and snorted at one of the girl's and she blushed and tugged on his leadrope. He shook his head but continued to walk next to her and into the barn. His white spots were surprisingly clean except for his white legs were they were grass-stained. She hooked him up in the cross ties and began spraying his legs with Green-Spot Remover. "Trigger, stand still," she told him. Taylor had been at Silver Star Academy for 2 and a half weeks already but Trigger was still acting differently than he did at home. She hoped no one would see him prancing around in the aisle while she was spraying him.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Justine arrived at the barn and looked around. Justine thought to her self ' This is wear I am going to be agisting Winter Brook Millie. I hope their are friendly people here. And other Royal show ponies that I can train with.' Justine knew that Winter Brook Millie also know as Millie for short had to be treated like royalty because if she did she would treat you in a nice manner back to you. Justine umloaded Millie and went to find a office. She met a nice lady inside called Angie. Angie showed the newest full lively Justine to her stall and which paddocks Millie would be kept in. Justine looked inside the stall. 'Hmmm' she though ' I will have to come back tomorrow and tidy it up as it has cobweds in the coners. Anyway let me go and meet some new people.' Justine spotted some girls over at the fence chatting and laughing. Justine decided they looked friendly anough and walked over to interduce her self. "Hi I'm Justine, I just got accepted into Silver Star Acadmy and I was wondering if you girls show or hae ponies? You see I go to royals with my pony Winter Brook Millie or Millie as she is know to friends. Anyway anough about me. Tell me who are you and who is this handsome gelding?"

A good rider can hear his horse speak to him, a great rider can hear his horse whisper, but a bad rider won't hear his horse even if it screams at him. Millie and Archie my two beautilful ponies.

Penelope Beaumont marched over to the barn. Of course Penny walked with attitude. That was her. She knew with her dangerously dark obsidian hair, flawless ivory skin and ice cold cobolt blue eyes she was lovely, and feared. This was entertaining to her. Penny filled everything with principle. She wasn’t shy and she was deffinatley vicious, she could cut you down in one stare. The only thing she let in, the one thing that that understood her complete coldness to the world was Parker. As she ran her perfectly manicured hand over his energetic eyes. She just breathed in his presence. It was amazing to know, he was hers, and she was his. They shared an understanding like no other. He was beautiful and cold just like her. "Not such a walk in the Park" otherwise known as Parker, was an Imported Hanoverian from Denmark he stood a perfect 17hh and had a coat so dark, such an inky black it was terrifying, it shared a shine that could blind you. He had identical stockings running up each 4 of his legs and a perfect diamond star battled with his gold fish eyes. She remembered when she found parker on a holiday in Denmark; she liked him that day, when she saw people try to ride him. Parker didn’t like people or other horses for that matter. She saw him such a vigorous, lively horse that did things for a purpose. He had movement to burn, and raw talent. She knew price wasn’t an issue so she bought made her father bring him home, to Silver Star. Nobody could get near him apart from herself, she sort of liked it. It made her feel special. Once she hit back into reality from her trip down memory lane Penelope snatched his halter from the hook and reached to place it behind his ears. Parker lowered his head to help her. She tied him up outside his stall and began grooming his onyx coat. Once she had saddled him up she was thrilled to get on and try her new County out. She mounted and rode out of the barn towards the arena. She saw people there, but no one worth speaking to anyway. She was pretty sure they were new. She could feel them staring. She gradually lifted her eyes to meet their gaze and of course in Penny character she shot them a look bitter enough to brake ice. “Hmmf” she whispered “soon enough they will know who I am and that this is my school.” The entire time she worked with parker who was being a champion at his flying changes and piaffe’s she felt them watching at a far.

The Perfect Day-
Going to bed with a Dream
and waking up with a Purpose!

Maddie managed a smile as even more students seemed to be appearing at the paddock. She reached into her pocket to look for her cell phone and saw that it was still well before classes to begin. The students here, she realized, really were serious about their horses to come down and see them and take care of them before classes she realized (and she respected that). She couldn’t say she was as experienced as most of the people standing around her probably would, but she was determined to try her best in any case. She turned to the girl who had introduced herself as Mac and smiled again, her eyes sparkling at the introduction. “Good to meet you Mac and good to meet you, Twinkie.” She said, looking at the excited horse with a grin.

She noticed there was an older woman standing back a ways from them and Maddie suspected she was a teacher. She couldn’t help hoping the woman would come over and introduce herself. She also noticed a girl bringing a horse into the cross ties to do a little grooming, though the horse seemed to have other ideas and didn’t look as though he wanted to stand still though she supposed she couldn’t blame him, the spraying looked like it might tickle. Another girl who had joined them had cold looking blue eyes and dark hair. Maddie was immediately shy of her and taken aback a little bit as well, especially as she started working the horse in one of the training pens. Her dressage skills were immaculate, even to Maddie’s untrained eye.
