An exceptionally good result for Ross on his first ride. Later he was dunked in the water trough, as is tradition after your first ride.
Thanks must go to all the support staff that help care for and transport the horses to rides. Notably, Old Boy, Doug Fletcher for his assistance in transporting horses.
