Personal Narrative: My Ride

Satisfactory Essays
I planned a quiet ride with just my horse, dog and I. It was expected it to be a normal ride until things went south. The plan was an evening ride with no other person just me and some animals. It was still light but the sun was setting so I should not have gone but did anyway. I went riding down country roads not expecting people to be there, but I was wrong. The ride was to escape family, I was really excited, but things did not end well
I had planned to go on a short ride just the dog and I before dinner. It was a cool October day around six pm and the sun had started to set. I thought the ride would be a peaceful one and did not plan to be gone long. I knew grandma was making dinner and I had to be back in time so it would not be cold when I did come back. I had the horse all saddled and we had started on our way because it had been a long day and I needed a break from my family; family can be a pain and you need to escape sometimes.
My expectation was that nothing would happen, I was actually excited for my ride because I had not ridden in a long time. The horse was acting good and I did not think she would act up while we were out. I ride on the road every time because nobody is ever driving on

I was just going to go to the end of the dirt road, about a mile, and go home. The sun was in my eyes and it just so happened that someone was driving those roads that day. He said he barely seen me because of the sun. He had almost hit my horse and I could have easily broken his windshield. He did not see Reese and his tire went over the top of her. She let out a single yelp and then she was gone. I knew I could not lift the eighty-pound dog on to my horse. So I took off for home to tell grandpa that Reese had been hit by a car. I was so upset that it started to upset my horse. By the time I had the horse tied up the guy had come to apologize for what had

    because they took out The Octopus ride and are going to replace it with a new ride called The Joker. I saw a fence bordering around the area where the new ride was going to be installed, and next to the fence I saw a sign that said “please don`t mind our dust.” At this time, it is vague about what kind of ride it will be. Well, enough about that other ride, let's talk about the other new ride, it`s called The Church of DOOM!! I was hasty to make this the first ride I went on. While I was waiting in…

    numbing pain that was my thoughts. The only thing I knew was get in the car and wait. Wait for what seems like years. The car ride was like watching yourself slowly die. Every bump, every nook in the rode was nauseating. Watching the buildings pass by had a calming effect, like a stress ball. My mind was a formula 1 car… racing. I didn’t know if my thoughts would crash and stress me out even more but I’m glad they didn’t. Although the car ride was like driving with the devil by my side I made it to the…

    there and ride the roller coasters, Mr. Freeze, The Boss, etc., but the one ride that I really wanted to go on was The Batman. The ride looked so awesome. I heard that you go upside down during the ride. “We’re here,” my dad said as we parked the car. I could already hear the screaming voices of the kids on roller coasters. It was like a thousand tiny hammers hitting the sides of head. They were so loud, I couldn’t hear a single word my dad said to me, and could tell from the look on my brother’s…

    A Reminiscing Ride Roller coasters epitomized all I feared. Automated cars that took control of your life for some time in exchange for "excitement". Despite my fear of roller coasters, my friends pressured me into getting on California Screamin’ simply reasoning that we wouldn’t always visit Disneyland. “God, forgive my sins,” I thought as we climbed onto the coaster. I’m not much of a hugger, but I sturdily embraced the safety bar. At the first drop in the coaster, I fell back into a dark, repressed…
