Today we went on a horse riding tour in the Andean foothills above Mendoza with a group of comedy Americans. With it only being the second time either of us had ridden a horse we were pretty nervous to say the least, especially when we started doing some serious uphill and downhill that the horses seemed to struggle with. A red hot day and once again the ski jackets came in real handy!
After about 3 hours of riding, KennyÂ´s horse (Kenny being the largest of the Americans) decided it had had enough and layed down like a camel and rolled over throwing Kenny into the sand.
By the end of the ride all of the horses had done the same thing except ShaunÂ´s as his was too busy eating at every possible opportunity. This wasnÂ´t a problem for the majority of the route but when "Tony" decided he wanted a little snack whilst on top of a cliff face with a 10m sheer drop, Shaun found it quite difficult to kick him in the ribs to get him moving.
