I am blue by Catiza I am blue by Catiza
Can you see that I love colors :D I really wanted that blue from the arena to stand out and also to have a small sun peeking over the trees :)
I really went wild with the light xD Not only is the sky filled with beams I also made sure that Máni and Leona got their fair share of light on them.

Story

Máni has not been so nervous before. It was her first competition and it was no ordinary one! The arena was not inside, where Máni gets her training in Rockyfall, but on a big platform outside. The platform was made of solid glass and was placed over an electric field. So beside Máni being nervous for her first competition she was also not fond of unexpected things on the ground like coats or training barrels. That of course would include the electric flashes that this arena had. 

The first ride in this arena was drama. Máni refused to step on to the glass and would only walk on it when Leona jumped in front of her to show her that it was safe. She carefully placed her hoof on the glass and then another one. They slowly walked around the arena and when Leona saw that Máni looked more comfortable she carefully climbed on her back. She sat down in the saddle and gave Máni her sign to move forward. She didn't listen and nervously moved on the glass. When Leona tried to make her move again she sure made her move. Just not the way she wanted it to. Máni launched forward to the closest railing, jumped over it and landed in the bushes. Since Leona didn't expect the strange jump she fell out off the saddle and landed in a bush. She was still holding the reigns and hold them firm so Máni would ran any further. Luckily the mare quickly calmed down. After this event Leona took it very slow. She changed Máni's gear for the gear she uses for lunging and made sure the mare would adjust to the scary arena. This took longer than expected and thanks to that they got a lot less time to practise their routine. 

And now we are at this point. Standing in front of the gates. Máni's nostrils were big and her ears were standing back. Leona tried to calm her down by rubbing her neck and massaging behind her ears. The arena was absolutely beautiful. The sun was still rising, but the clouds were full of colours that reflected back in the glass arena. Máni let out a few nervous puffs, but recollected herself fairly quick. She stood still and let herself be cuddled by Leona. Now it's time to see our next contestant preform! Would Leona and Máni please enter the arena.
Leona took a deep breath and mounted Máni. They walked to the middle of the arena and waited for the music. It was showtime.
