I know the stereotypes. But sadly, for me, they are untrue. This was going to be my first time on a horse, and I wanted to make it a great one. Catherine had been riding before. She did a full adventure trail in Lesotho, a landlocked country, completely surrounded by its only neighboring country, the Republic of South Africa. She went through up mountains, into valleys, and through water, so she felt confident about riding, and she was excited to show me what it was all about.

The whole day I played a game with Catherine’s horse. I tried to keep close to her. Well, honestly, I always love being close to Catherine but today, without the cooperation of a my horse, it was proving to be quite a challenge. At certain times I was close, others times I was left in the dust.
Catherine wouldn’t move away from the horses. She didn’t want to leave.
