My Defining Moment

My Defining Moment

          It had been a long day at school and I was sitting on the couch at home watching tv. Then all of a sudden my dad turned the tv off. He spoke is a stern voice 'we need to talk'. As I walked into the other room my mind was racing. Was I in trouble? Had I done something wrong? And that's when it happened, my defining moment. The day I got my very own  horse.

          My horse's name is Dillon and I've had him for almost four years now. I believe this is my defining moment because I've become so much more responsible. I learned to read subtle cues such as health related and feeling related like happy, sad or nervous. I've also learned how to cope in different situations especially under stress. Which is beneficial during a test at school or a cross country race. Ultimately my defining moment was the day I could call Dillon my own.

  1. I can only imagine your excitement when you found out about your own horse. As a child, I think I was the outlier in terms of horses. All of my friends were into horses, but not me. I was even the lucky one: my dad asked on several occasions if I wanted my own horse, but I always said no.

    I think that it is awesome that you have learned so much from having Dillon and that your experiences have transferred over into other parts of your life.
