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.
