3 thoughts on “Ездить

  1. I didn’t understand this word – верхо́м – so looked it up. It meant “on horseback.” The example would have been much clearer with that word translated. Just “riding” can mean riding anything – evidently, you meant on horseback, but the reader has to figure that out.

    • PS: I just wrote the comment about horseback – that meaning kind of conflicts with the definition initially given, so the definition perhaps needs revision to reflect that it can mean horseback?? Not sure, finding this a bit confusing.

        Hello Karen,

        Thank you for the comment and for noticing the inaccuracy in translation. It’s horse riding, of course.
