Blue Ridge is a fictional town located deep in the heart of Kentucky. It is home to one of the most well known equestrian academies in the United States. Students and staff from all over the world join the academy for what it has to offer. Do you have what it takes to join us and learn from the Academy?

Dear Ms Selphie,
My name is Cara-Jean Kitchi and I am a student at Blue Ridge Riding Academy. One of the classes I take part in has me working with a Dales Pony cross, named Artist's Palette.
She has developed a habit of bucking like a rodeo horse when she is ridden. I have been working her from the ground, but when I tried to work her over some small jumps she spooked when she clipped the rail with her back feet.
The reason I am writing to you, is because I know that you trained her and her rider in jumping and I was hoping that you could shed some light on what I don't know about her past.

Welcome back to the land of bluegrass!!! It's a pity that you had to leave that beautiful horse behind, you should have asked of you could have boarded him here!! And so you should be sorry for not telling me earlier!!!!
Yeah, I'd had the girls together once already, some of them I still have hope for, others I'm a hair away from kicking off the squad, just because I'm sick of them not being bothered to show up on time or seeming to care that they are supposed to be working as a team. I need to remind these girls that they are as strong as their weakest link. Their new mantra this year will be "United we stand, divided we fall".
OH! With you being so close, is there a chance that we can get our mascot back? We'd only need her for games, and having you there for games would give the squad a bit more drive, knowing that their old captain was watching them. The girls here seem to forget that I hadn't the captaincy to you. Personally, I would love for you to come an visit us whenever you want to

He'll be an awesome beginner's horse. After all, he's had a great partner until now. Man, I sound like I'm trying to suck up for something!! If your barn manager is running out of room, there could be chance that people are abusing the "one per person" rule and maybe bringing two horses and having a friend have the second horse under their name. All they would need is a contract to say they were leasing the horse.
Hahaha, the girls will learn very quickly how much of a task mistress I can be if one or two of them tick me off. Sure, I'm not the captain anymore, but it is my job to bring the best out of the squad. I have a little more sway over the team than this year's captain will have, I have the fact that I can give cheer detention if they piss me off! And I'm sure that after doing lunge-squats up and down the studio for half an hour will stop any other annoyances.
What? You think that just because I want your mutt that you can come to the games too??? Of course you are welcome to any of the games that you want to attend, even if Nunya decides that she doesn't want to play the mascot any more (it is important to me that she still wants to do it). Forgotten her handstand? I'll have to whip her back into shape quickly then!!! Only kidding, I'm sure that once back in uniform, it'll all come rushing back. I just hope she remembers how to wave her pom poms... hehehe
