Asher groaned as he tossed and turned at 4 am. He cursed, deciding to just go to the show grounds. He made his bed and showered and changed into navy blue jodhpurs, a red and blue rain jacket and pulled on some black gum boots.
He ate some toast and hurried back upstairs, brushing his teeth and packing his bag. He carried his bag down, making sure he had his phone, wallet, keys and room card. He checked himself out and ran out to his car, hurriedly putting his bag on the back seats and climbing in.
It was pouring with rain, luckily Asher packed the studs for Toto. Asher parked his car and hurried to the stables. It was still dark at 5 am, and the show grounds would only start to get busy at around 6 am. Asher cooed at Toto, giving him a quick groom and putting on his bridle.
Asher mounted the tall black stallion, who was becoming wet from the slight drizzle. He clicked his horse on, letting him stretch his neck as they entered the forest. It took him some time to reach the end of the forest at a walk, and he saw the clouds had gone but everything was muddy.
Asher clicked his horse into a trot, sitting because he had no saddle. Asher looked around, and saw a girl. He frowned before clucking his horse into a canter towards the girl.
As they neared, Asher pulled his horse up and jumped off, racing over to help the girl. "Are you okay?" he recognized her, "Hey, you go the shapshifitng school. I'm also there." he smiled, before realizing she was in pain.
He pulled off his rain jacket and pulled it around her to keep her warm. "It's gonna be okay." He lifted her up so she was sitting on Toto. He hoisted himself up, so he was sitting behind her. He wrapped his broken arm around her waist and clicked Toto into a canter.
"Grab onto his mane if you feel unstable." Asher said. He clicked Toto into a faster, but still smooth, gallop. They headed back towards the show grounds.
Once they had arrived, Asher quickly took off the bridle and placed the poor girl onto the ground. "Stay here." He raced towards his she car, he opened his bag and quickly took out some clothes. A pair of grey sweatpants, a black shirt and a red hoodie.
He led her to the bathroom and gave the clothes to her. "I'll be here once you're done." He hurried around, grabbing warm food and drinks and a packet to put her clothes into.
Once she had changed, he took he really clothes and out it in the packet and led her to the rider's lounge. He sat her down on one of the couches, gave her the food and drinks and called over a doctor who quickly checked her over.
Asher left her with the doctor, "If you need anything come find me." he smiled, and headed to go get Toto ready. He groomed him again and Mr Green was soon there, plaiting and then going to look at the course.
Asher saddled the horse up, put on the boots and placed studs into the horse's shoes and smiled. "Who's a good boy?" He cooed, feeding him a treat.
Mr Green was soon back and took Toto to warm up. Asher shivered in his tshirt and grabbed a jacket from his car before going back to the lounge to check on the girl. He was glad that she was still there.
"Do you need to phone anyone? I could drive you home?" He asked, softly.
