    ... was that the horse was deciding the speed not me. Both Tom and I hung onto these animals as they decided to gallop, walk, occasionally stop, then gallop again! After nearly 3 hours of this plus a torrential down pore, I looked over to my husband and knew this might be the last horse ride of the trip!
