of course of course, unless that horse is under me. I rode a horse yesterday for the first time since, oh 1998? My aunt and uncle have horses, and Big Whompers and my niece were riding (being led by my aunt). My aunt asked if I'd like to ride, so I hopped on behind my niece, and she handed me the reigns. I was a bit taken aback - I wasn't actually planning on leading myself, especially with my niece in front and no saddle. I gave it a quick go and handed the reigns back.
I will post some pictures of Big Whompers and her first horse experience when we get home.
