Riding Day One

Riding Day One
Originally uploaded by mercutio2k
A friend just sent me this picture, from my first day of horseback riding. The Sudanese man who had been leading my horse around generously stepped out so I could give the illusion I knew what I was doing. The lessons have been fun. I've advanced to the point where the Captain wants me to wear a helmet, the first few times he ignored I didn't have one. I suppose if I fell from horses as docile as those were, I got what I deserved.

It's been a few weeks now of once or twice a week. Another friend observed to me, "The world looks different from horseback." It certainly does. Between motorcycles and horses, my free time here has become very nice.
