He wasn't at all prepared for what happened next. The stallion turned, raced around, got in front and headed straight for her. Kevin held his breath, but the horse didn't slow and when she held out her hand, the stallion lowered his head as if to charge her. Just as it shot past, the woman grabbed the horse's mane and with ease and grace, swung up onto its bare back. Then she leaned down and hugged the horse's neck until the stallion slowed to a trot and stopped.

Kevin couldn't hear what she was saying, but it was obvious she was urging the horse on. She lightly kicked his sides, but the horse didn't move. Instead, it pawed the ground and shook its head. The woman roared with laughter and Kevin couldn't help but laugh with her. He'd never seen anything like it.

As the horse began to move again, she carefully got to her knees and then to her feet. She balanced herself perfectly, held both of her arms straight out, and as the stallion brought her close to Kevin's end of the glen, she closed her eyes and lifted her chin into the wind.

She was indeed the most beautiful woman he had ever seen, and he believed nothing she did could astound him now. He was wrong. When the horse began to bring her near again, she reached for an arrow, loaded her bow, and before he could react, her arrow flew between his legs. He didn't flinch. Instead, he raised an eyebrow and glared at her.
