We took our maiden voyage today with Theoden leading out his little concubine, Indiana. Things got a little interesting when she tried to bite him and wanted to eat the bracken but on the whole she's got it. Our lesson on lateral work with Amanda Barton yesterday is already paying dividends with Theoden offering to move North West to make more room for her. Thinking of all the directions you can go in with a horse as being points on a compass is a really useful analogy. We're all in search of our True North.
