    A cooked wallet

    Hi, Pls check and correct the mistakes in the following essay, thanks.

    People always make some unexpected mistakes because of their bad memory, As in the case of Jane's fiance, John, who ran a successful business.
    John had a very good day because he had signed a valuable contact with one customer. When he arrived at home, he decided to go horse-riding. He put his wallet in a microwave oven for safe-keeping and then went out with Jane.
    About one and a half hours later, John and Jane went back home and Jane began to cooked their dinner with microwave oven without realizing the wallet in it. Suddenly, Jane smelled something burning. She immediately turned off the oven and opened its door. Imagine her desmay when she found a beautiful cooked wallet. All notes turned to ash!

    Because of poor memory, people often make mistakes, as in the case of Jane's fiance, John, who ran a successful business.

    John had a very good day, having signed a valuable contact with a customer. When he arrived home, he decided to go horseback riding with Jane, and before going out he put his wallet in the microwave for safe-keeping.

    About an hour and a half later, they returned home. Jane started dinner. She used the microwave without realizing that the wallet was inside it. Suddenly, she smelled something burning. She immediately turned off the oven and opened its door. Imagine her dismay when she found a beautifully cooked wallet. All the bills had turned to ashes.

    Thanks, soup.
    I learnt the phrase "Go horse-riding" in my English book, but now you give me another one "Go horseback riding", is the phrase "Go horse-riding" wrong?
