From  The Subtleties of the Inimitable
Mulla Nasrudin
by Idries Shah


FIRST TIME

The Mulla was invited to a country house for the weekend.

His host had a number of horses paraded before the guests, so that each could choose one to ride.

The chief groom announced the horses:

'This one was ridden by Prince such-and-such; this one by the Duke of Blankshire . . .'

The Mulla was not to be outdone:

'Bring me', he said, 'a horse that has never been ridden at all.'
