If you think I have a healthy respect for motorbikes, believe me, I respect horses, their size, the fact that they have their own brains even more....

I also love horses... once fell twice on the same day on a tourist farm out near Lydenburg. Not nice. After the ride, the owner remarked... " Funny how everybody that rides that horse seem to fall." Duh, hallo, maybe there is something with the horse!  ???

No more horse riding for me... They are too slow and does not wheely that lekker.
Dagaty!!!

Did Showjumping for many years, had more falls than I have ever had on a bike - but to ride a well schooled, well fed, intelligent animal can only be one of the greatest pleasures - ridden all down the wild coast - what an experience.  Done The Hunt in Joburg and Nelspruit - awesome.  I have many great memories and very few bad.

IMO, the only thing a horse can successfully do is convert money (large amounts) to cr@p. I've ridden a few, many years back and didn't enjoy it at all. Like Grootseun says, they have a mind of their own, which doesn't endear me to them at all.
There are old riders, and bold riders, but no old, bold riders.

Sounding better and better - can't ride a fatty too good, but can certainly enjoy some decent synaptic firing.

Rode horses in the valley.... got dumped on the beach a few times.  Swimming on horse back in the surf is an awesome experience.

Why ride a few when you did not enjoy it at all? :scratch: Sukka for punishment? :dontknow:

Oh geez... I can really take this sentence out of context!  :-[ Or maybe that is in context after all.  >:D Synaptic firing indeed. Never quite heard it put that way before!  :D
