Describe what you heard / found / saw
I was racing through a field with two other boys my age (about 12-13). I had the strangest feeling comenover me. As we came to the end of the field we went up an hill (20') that led to another field. I stoppednmy horse and turned around, As I was scanning the woods that lined the lower field, I saw it. It wasnabout 9' tall and black. It appeared to be watching us from behind a tree. I could only see its head andntorso. Its legs were behind the tree. I told myself that it was probably just a dead tree or bushes behindnthe tree. I made note of where it was, and were I was. We raced to the end of the upper field, turnednaround and raced back. As I approached the spot were I was at when I saw it. There was nothing behindnthe tree, I road on. As I passed the spot where it was, nothing was behind the tree.

Additional comments
I didn't say anything to the other two boys I was with. I was afraid that they might try to chase it. Whilenlooking at it there was a slight breeze to my back. So I couldn't smell anything, and my horse wasn'tnacting up.
