Here's my story...


I was riding Mystique bareback on the trail last Wednesday when a bee flew into her forelock and got stuck. It was hanging between her eyes - freaking out because it was stuck - and buzzing reallllly loudly. At first, she just threw her head a little, and I just kind of sat there because I assumed it would get itself free soon. Well... it didn't, and she started getting more freaked out. She started executing a perfect reining spin at 100mph whilst throwing her head, neck, and shoulders up and down. I was equal parts thrilled by her spin and worried about my balance, haha. Eventually I half-fell-off and half-emergency-dismounted and swatted the bee out of her forelock. Nobody was stung : ]

I'm sure it was hilarious. I happened to be riding past a sports area (4 soccer fields, 4 baseball fields, and 2 football fields) and there were games going on, haha.
