Save the day by shepherding a flock on horseback in Altyn Arashan

While waiting for our Uzbek visas, me and the Australian couple, Rachel and Owen, decided to use the time to venture out into the Kyrgyz countryside. Eager to act like locals, we rented horses and trotted toward the beautiful valley of Altyn Arashan. Along the way we encountered a flock of a few hundred sheep and a Shepherd driving drunk on his horse. Knowing that drinking and driving is a dangerous combination, we quickly came to the rescue by rearing the misguided sheep in the right direction. Some people might have said that the sheep were merely running out of the way as three inexperienced tourist horseriders were stumbling and fumbling all over them, but I don’t know who those people are or where to find them so you will just have to take my word for it that we were brilliantly talented Shepherding Hero’s.
