“Last weekend I went to Badminton Horse Trials. It was amazing. The fences were so high. I stood next to one at the end of the day and it was taller than me. We got there really early so Mum could go shopping. She bought a really embarrassing hat silk with pink unicorns and Pom poms. I liked looking round the shops and there were lots of things to buy for your horses. We even saw some famous people. We walked the course after shopping, there were loads of people. I really liked the lake section but we didn’t see anyone fall off. I hope one day that I can ride fences as big as that.”
