Counted 17 horses for sure and one mule. Could be more horses. Nowadays I'm happy just riding my own two.

Horses are proof that God wants us to be happy

Has anyone else ever ridden an elephant?

I did at a circus once. It really wasn't riding, more like sitting there and getting led around, but it was still a cool thing to be able to say I have done. I was towards the back of the elephant with a bunch of other people and that sucker was WIDE. That's the number one thing I remember about the elephant, it was wide and uncomfortable. I would LOVE to try a camel, but that will probably never happen.
I've ridden a couple of mules too. I have no idea how many horses, but not as many as a lot of you!

@trailhorserider , I also got to ride an elephant when I worked at the Maryland Renaissance Festival. Because I was a rider working in a show, the elephant owner let me ride on the head and guide the elephant. I imagine the head is much more comfortable than the body. All the animal people working the show liked to bond together and help each other.

Camels are not the most fun to ride for sure. They aren't horrible but they heave and lurch and you have no stirrups and it is a loooooong way to fall if you lose your balance. The nomadic tribes had them when I was in the middle east in the Marine Corps. and from time to time we would get a wild hair and talk a tribesman into letting us ride around on one. The saddles with the handle bar type of grip are a lot nicer than the ones with a saddle horn look for being able to hold on and stay on. A lot of places in the middle east that are touristy type areas like Petra in Jordan etc. offer short camel rides for tourists and even longer sight seeing tours on camels in some areas. In Petra the animals can't go down into the actual site so those are just short rides from the parking lot to the mouth of the canyon that you enter the site through, a few hundred yards so people can say they rode a camel, nothing more.

No idea how many total horses I've ridden! Tons of lesson horses growing at a few different farms, followed by countless 2 and 3 year olds that I rode as an exercise rider at a training farm. I have owned 2 - my high school/college horse that I sadly had to give away due to being a poor college student, and my current Appy gelding - my heart :)
