The Horse & Warrior - Aesop Fable #47
There was a horse who was sole owner of a meadow. Then a stag came along and wreaked havoc in the meadow. The horse wanted to get revenge, so he asked a certain warrior if he would help him carry out a vendetta against the stag. The warrior agreed, provided the horse take a bit in his mouth so the warrior could ride him and wield his javelin. The horse consented and the warrior climbed on his back. But instead of getting his revenge, the horse simply became a slave to the warrior.
