A lady from out East had ridden the railroad across the country and got off in a small town in the old Wild West to take a break during her long and arduous journey.
While she was there, she thought that she would be adventurous and take a horseback ride so she could experience some of the Wild West for herself.
She went across the street to the Livery Stable and told the cowboy there what she wanted.
“Can you get me a nice gentle pony?”, she asked him.
“Sure,” said the cowboy. “What kind of a saddle do you want, English or western?”
“What’s the difference?” asked the lady.
“The western saddle has a horn on it,” said the cowboy.
The lady replied, “If the traffic is so thick here in the mountains that I need a horn on my saddle, I don’t believe I want to ride”.
