I rode a horse and lived to tell about it

Yesterday I entered the amazing world of equestrian amusement. After having helped clean the stables a few times (and being bit by a horse in the process) it was finally time for me enjoy some horse riding. Bareback riding even.

At first I was handed a bucket with which I was supposed to get up on the horse, but it was an Ardennes breed so that try ended up with me falling of the bucket in a bit of slapstick comedy. A proper chair was then brought forth and I was able to mount the horse.

When I was sitting comfortably on the and holding the reins in my hands it was time to set off. At first I was a bit unsure of how to control the horse, but after a bit of practice I found that it was a bit more subtle than I had thought it'd be and I made some adjustments to my steering. The ride was (thankfully) rather uneventful but nonetheless fun and I was able to return to the stables uninjured.

    Obamas' dog can cure cancer (In Swedish). Yeah, it's true, Swedens largest free newspaper says so. Seems like there's nothing Barack and his family…

    Holy crap, Daniel Clowes and Charles Burns designed the cans for some soda called OK Soda! I'd drink that all day if it was still available.
