    Yes – I completely agree – this was such a direct and simple discussion of the Horseback. I recently taught in Rome and with my limited Italian I thought – this is the way to go to not talk too much – LOL. Thank you Dorothee!

    When you ride a horse, you sit up straight.

    Why is it called the HORSEBACK on the Ladder Barrel?
    Is it not a contradiction in terms?
