I can’t wait to see what surprises are in store for us in the fourth season of AMC’s, The Walking Dead. One thing that’s for sure, our favorite ninja blade-wiedling badass Michonne will be riding a horse. Check out the still below to see her in action and see what the actress had to say.

In an interview with EW, actress Danai Gurira had this to say about her experience with ‘Flame’ the horse.

“I’m going to tell you this and I’m going to regret saying this, but I’m proud of myself, O.K? Because I learned how to ride a damn horse and I didn’t know how to ride a horse, and I was like, ‘I’ve got to know how to ride a horse for the show, and there’s no ifs, ands, buts, or maybes about it. So, I’ve got to figure this mess out.’ And when I got on that thing, I thought I was going to be able to handle it. I said, ‘I’m going to be able to handle this thing!’ I thought it would be fine, and then I got on it and I was like, this is really not easy. This is not easy. This is a huge beast and it has very sharp instincts. It really expects you to know what you’re doing or it’s not going to listen to you. And, it’s bigger than you and stronger than you. And, you’re really high off the ground.”
