That's Kim. I'm not sure what she was asking of Finn, but it obviously needed sound effects. We had a chuckle about sounding like a pirate. Ah, yes. The "Pirate School of Equitation and Horse Training."
That's me. Trying to get Phantom off my leg and bent correctly at the canter. That was worth a chuckle, too. The "Weight Lifting Guide to Riding Your Horse."
As we continued riding there were the "Good boys," and more assorted grunts and groans. It seems sound effects are required when directing half a ton or so of equine around the arena from our perches. It was apparently a good day for Kim as well as me -- no epithets or expletives directed at Phantom or Finn.
So for those folks who believe that the horse does all the work -- have a listen! Sounds to me like the riders are putting in the effort, too! ;-)
