Dan, Dan, Dan. Dan the Man...er.... Horse.
Dan. Dan is the school horse I’ve been assigned to. Dan is in his 20’s. Dan is old. Dan doesn’t move fast. Dan follows Lauren (the teacher) or Astelle (the other horse) – nevermind the scrawny biped on his back. We practiced two-point (no butt on the saddle, but you still have to keep your hips aligned with your ankles while leaning over…like a jockey) until my legs were twitching… ah the pain. This definitely is going to require ankle exercise. Lauren’s decided she wants to teach us jumping. Don’t watch Gone with the Wind any time soon.
