So, I was back on the horse, travelling 9kms across lush countryside to the bus stop to take me back to the city.
But this time I had been shown how to ride the horse properly and was sat up straight with my heels down.
This time I had no smelly horse and no hat to hold onto and was wearing a sports bra for that added comfort.
And this time, I was shouting ‘Can we go any faster?'
Sometimes, you just need to give things a second chance.
