Yesterday, while we were out in the paddock flying our kite, David decided he wanted to try riding one of the horses that were milling around us.

The horse was small enough for David to easily jump onto her back. But she was so docile, David had to whack her flank to get her to move.

The whack worked, and the horse started taking off.

But she didn't like having a man on her back, and she soon started bucking.

And then David was off! The horse galloped back to her friends, and our girls dissolved into giggles at their Daddy's antics.
