Was Jim Calhoun on a horse?

I hate linking to deadspin for some reason. It always feels over the top, given that all deadspin does is link to things. META. If anyone knows for sure who was on the horse (Allen has, in the words of Daffy Duck, pronoun trouble) I'd be much obliged. Anyway, here's a thing: "If he'd care to share a story about Jim Calhoun taking his UCONN trip on a field trip prior to the start of the 1999 NCAA Tournament: "[W]e were playing at Rupp Arena, that was my junior year. It was like ‘get ‘em out of the hotel, I don't want them sitting around.' He always did something. Now I understand it more, because now I travel and I get out and I do certain things just to enjoy certain cities. So he took us to a horse farm in Kentucky, and he was like, ‘guys, you think you guys are doing something?' And then we walked into this barn, and this big horse came out, and he was just ready. He was ready. He just saddled this thing and he just went to work. And we were like ‘wow!' Everybody was going crazy, everybody was laughing, it was so funny, and we were like ‘we really ain't doing nothing.' That was the PG version."
