Equestrian Olympics

Equestrian is a sport that is played in the olympics . It showcases jumping over stables and a little bit of dancing with a horse . There is a obstacle course that each competitor and horse has to do together . Their points are managed on how well they turn on the corners . There is absolute joy in feeling their powerful muscles with your every wish and command .

Whether you are a horse rider or not you should give Equestrian ago . If possible you will need to we're leather boots with heels also long pants are rirequired . A helmet should be provided in this sport in case you fall off and hit your head .  For the horses care you groom it . Did you know that you must by horse clothing before  you purchase a horse .

In a grooming kit you must have curry comb to break up the loose hair also a stiff body brush to remove or the debris and a soft finishing brush for the shine and gloss .

You must take care of your horse and concentrate on the medal . There is not that much techniques used in Equestrian but the one technique that is used on horses is love .

Winning a gold medal as a Equestrian is hard . You need to practise practise and practise . Also your horse must be 9 years old or more for them to compete in the olympics . Did you know that the 56 year old New Zealand competer won Bronze which made him come third . He had a 49.10 penalty .

MT . Eden

Adventurous was what I was feeling on Friday . When we went on a trip to Mt Eden for an nature                 experience . From a mountain's view . We went on the flying fox also we walked with loss in our mind          when walking through the bush walk . There were rocks that were stacked up on each other it was cool       because it made you feel like you were bear grills . When the walk ended we were all lost and the only way down was to go down a hill . Slipping away to tree to tree .  It was like pinball for a minute but there were a few similarities .

After that I went on the flying fox it was fun and scary . At the end you had to put your head down or else it  will hit your head . After my turn it was my dad and my little brothers turn . He was happy as . with both of them on they nearly touched the ground . It was funny watching them .

We went on a bush walk it was freaky because it was just me and my cousin Gabby . And we went on           the rocks that were stacked up on each other . I had slippery shoes on and then I nearly fell luckily I had a   tight grip on to my cousin . We were calling my cousin and trying to scare my cousin . She then found us      and we were laughing .

To end our beautiful day we went home and got to play a basket ball game .  At the courts . When we were puffed out we sat on the hill and watched the sun set . Who would ever think a basket ball court was a nice place to watch the sun set

Immersion Assembly

Walking through the door to school . I was wondering what we were learning about for this term . Turning around I saw the board that was telling us about what we are learning about . We then found out that we were learning about the Olympics but our heading was Go For Gold . I wasn't really surprised of the topic this term because of the Olympics . As I play netball and like some other sports I was really looking forward to doing some research on some different sports .

When I took my first step into the school  hall for immersion assembly my mind went crazy . Not like other assembly when the teachers are dressed like cave men and weird princess . This term they weren't that crazy only a bit . But when I looked around to all the teachers and teams that were dressed up and then when I looked around back to our team they were normal . Then I started to wonder what our item was going to be ?. It was the funniest there .

All of the items were inspiring and funny and had a hole lot of information  . After team 1 &2 I started to get inspired and I found out about some Olympians like Jesse Owen which is a famous Olympian for running . Did you know that he ran in the 500 kilometres and placed second .  Which would be pretty hard .

When doing his training's he had to run a 250 kilometres  track .

Do you know how to be a Olympian ?
