    Dancing Chocobo Have you ever ridden a horse?

    Just 100 years ago the vast majority of people could say yes to this. Who knows these days, though! Have you ridden a horse before?

    I've ridden both Horses and Camels. Horses are far easier to manage and don't scare the living trout out of you when they get up/down for you. Though getting on a tall horse is pretty smurfing hard.

    I sadly don't get to go horse riding very often and certainly haven't ridden one in at least a year.

    Yep! Rode a tiny bit as a kid, and went on a horseback mountain trail mini-retreat with my family a little over two years ago. My horse's name was Joker, which was totally apt.

    We rode for maybe fourish/fiveish hours through the mountain trails and the trees and foliage and it was just wonderful. So calm and serene. I was incredibly nervous when we first started going because it had been a long time since I'd been on a horse, but once we got to know eachother better, it was smooth sailing.

    Was super sore afterward and the next day, but I would love to do it more.

    There used to be a horse riding place around East Kilbride. My sister used to go all the time, so when I was old enough, they took me along too.

    I was sat around, waiting for my horse... they trotted up this little pony...

    And then I cried. And cried. And cried. And then cried some more.


    So no, I have never ridden a horse, nor do I have any real desire to. xD

    I remember winning a donkey race when I was a kid on a beach somewhere. Other than that I never have.

    I won a stick of rock. My donkey's body was a temple.

    I went to horse riding lessons as a kid, about 8 years old. The instructor thought it was time for me to get on a horse without a lead for the first time. I quickly lost control of it as I had no idea what I was doing and it started galloping around the ring and I was just hanging on for dear life. They eventually got it to calm down but I was completely terrified. The instructor had the cheek to shout at me and tell me it was all my fault. xD

    Ever since I haven't gotten on one. It's a big fear I have, though I intend someday to ride a horse again.

    No. Can't say I have. Knowing my luck I'd probably fall off and break my neck, or lose all memory of who I am until I talk to my twin.

    Once, when I was a kid.

    I just trotted the guy around the field a time or two, and didn't bother spurring him or nothing. I still don't know why he decided to rear up as I was getting off, but I fell on my butt pretty hard. Maybe he wanted to go fast or something.

    When I was very small I had my own pony. Now, I haven't ridden a horse in about 20 years.

    It's been a few years now but there was a while where I was riding a horse a few times a week.

    I wasn't very good at it, but it was enjoyable nonetheless!

    Yes, I used to work on an Icelandic Horse farm.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    I have, but I never really wanted to. My family liked it, so we sometimes went to attractions where we go on horse rides through a trail. I never actually liked the idea of riding a living creature with a mind of its own. On one of these rides, some freak accident occurred and the horse fell on me. Luckily, it was on a sopping-wet downward hill so the horse rolled off me and I only suffered bruised ribs. It still hurt to cough and yawn for a month, though...

    Never again! And that's fine by me.

    Yes, several times between the age of 8 and 16. I was never any good at it though.
