The Beatles horse-riding

After a night awake, dawdling through poker and cigarettes and beer into the early hours, we took our pick of some wild and rugged horses. Watched with amusement by Mrs Pigman, we chose our nags according to whim; Beatles first, aides next, Brian last because – alone among us – he did know something about riding horses.  Derek Taylor (The Beatles Anthology)
