Holding Onto The Saddle Horn
While traveling through a remote area of Arizona, a woman hailing from New York experienced car trouble. At this moment, an American Indian on horseback came to her aid, kindly offering her a ride to a nearby town. She accepted the offer, mounting the horse behind him, and they set off on their journey.
The ride itself was rather uneventful, save for the intermittent, resounding ‘Ye-e-e-e-h-a-a-a-a’ cries from the Indian that reverberated across the surrounding hills. Upon reaching their destination, the Indian dropped her off at a local service station, emitted one final exuberant ‘Ye-e-e-e-h-a-a-a-a,’ and then rode off.
Perplexed, the service-station attendant inquired, “What did you do to elicit such enthusiasm from the Indian?”
The woman replied, “Nothing special. I simply rode behind him on the horse, wrapped my arms around his waist, and held onto the saddle horn to avoid falling off.”
The attendant responded, “Lady, that’s intriguing because Indians don’t use saddles.”
