This picture brings back this story:
Ronald Reagan and the Queen were out riding together (I think it was during one of his visits to the UK). He had ridden a little ahead when his horse suffered from a long moment of flatulance. Somewhat embarrassed and not wishing to offend Her Majesty the gentlemanly Mr Reagan said "Oh, I am sorry!" To which the Queen replied, "OH! I thought it was your horse!"

:-D Apophrycal, [sp?] but a good story anyway. The only time they went riding was at Windsor in the early 80s. Ronnie wanted to return the favor later by letting her ride at his ranch, but it rained like hell all the week she was in California, and it was decided against.

He was something else.
