But one day that summer, was Rainbow Dash busy with preparing for the anniversary of Best Young Flyer Competition.
The Mane Six sat in Sugarcube Corner with something to drink one morning, as Rainbow Dash she told about the coming competition.
"It will be bigger than last time we were together in Cloudsdale. and I have to fly against the Shadowbolts this time!" Rainbow Dash she said to her friends.
"The Shadowbolts? Stay careful now!" Applejack she said to Rainbow Dash.
Then Rainbow Dash she told stories about how she raced against the Shadowbolts before, but never before in an competiton.
"Don't overdo it! We won't see another accident in Cloudsdale again!" Rarity said to Rainbow Dash.
The next day came, and Twilight she made the spell so they could walk on clouds again. So the ponies flew in their hot air balloon up to Cloudsdale with Rainbow Dash beside. The Mane Six got welcomed by their friends in the sky that went with them to the Cloudiseum.
There was a huge crowd of ponies under the sun, and more ponies went to the competition than last. The place was decorated with flags, banners and on.
The cheering of the crowd was loud, and it got louder while Princess Celestia she entered the Cloudiseum.
"Greetings everypony! I now have the pleasure to open the anniversary of this competition, and one of thopse who returns are Rainbow Dash!" Princess Celestia she shouted.
Rainbwo Dash shaked, as she saw the biggest crowd in Cloudsdale.
"Now don't get nervous! Show those Shadowbolts who you are!" Pinkie Pie said to Rainbow Dash. As the crowd warmed up, was there an acrobatic show by female ponies.
There was few minutes until Rainbow Dash should fly, and she teamed up with both Spitfire and Soarin'.
"Thanks to our acrobatic ponies, and now for the main event that is the race between the crowd of both ponies from Cloudsdale, and Shadowbolts!" Princess Celestia she shouted.
"That pony who wins, are rewarded with my golden Canterlot award!" Princess Celestia shouted.
The ponies gathered at the line, as Princess Celestia she counted down. In the meanwhile, was the crowd cheering loudly.
"Go Rainbow Dash! Good luck!!" Applejack she shouted.
"So you think you can win? We the Shadowbolts will do our best to win again!" Shadowbolt said to Rainbow Dash.
Then a firework it opened the race between the ponies, as Rainbow Dash she flew for gold. Both the crowd and the sound of the fliers was loud, while Sonic Rainbooms it filled the air.
It was in the middle of the race, as Rainbow Dash she faced the Shadow Bolts full speed. Rainbow Dash she got kicked away by the villains, as she lost control. Rainbow Dash she fell to the ground. The celebration stopped, as everypony saw the injured pegasus while the Shadow Bolts flew away in full speed.
"Sorry! Shows over everypony!" Princess Celestia said to the audience.
"Rainbow Dash is wounded by the Shadow Bolts, who escaped!" the princess said.
Rainbow Dash's friends went over to Rainbow Dash, who was beaten out. Then the nurses came, and took Rainbow Dash to the hospital.
Then Applejack and her friends went home to Ponyille, as the show was over.
"Dear Princess Celestia! Applejack is feeling better, as she is visiting Fluttershy and her animals this summer evening!" Twilight wrote to the princess later in the evening in her library.
"We decided to visit Rainbow Dash tomorrow, and it's the first time she got that bad injured at a flight!" Twilight wrote on.
Later that night, was Applejack dreaming about her filly days with Rainbow Dash. Filly Applejack she visited Rainbow Dash, and she got a surprise that she was reading that day.
"Hay, reading books? I thought you was busy with weather and racing!" Applejack said to Rainbow Dash in her bedroom.
"Yes! I went to the local library, and found some books about the history of Cloudsdale!" Rainbow Dash said to Applejack.
Later that day, was Rainbow Dash going with Applejack to Sweet Apple Acres where she showed around.
Rainbow Dash she told how she hated to loose and her stage fright as a filly.
"So mind to come by to Pinkie Pie's anniversary party for Sugarcube Corner tonight? I know you love to party like Pinkie Pie!" Rainbow Dash said to Applejack.
The two ponies agreed to meet with Pinkie Pie, who was Applejack's first friend in school while she came from a farm too.
