1. Does "landed on the other side of the cliff"? mean "there were two cliffs facing each other, and he jumped from one cliff to the other" or "he just jumped within one cliff from one side to the other side"? Or did he fall down from the cliff?
2. Does "took his horse back" mean "he made his horse go backward a little bit" or "he brought his horse again to a certain place"? The translation goes the former, but I wonder if the latter works.
go2-mo6-29 ex)The man made a twenty-foot jump on horseback and landed on the other side of the cliff. No problem, I can catch him, Kenny thought. Kenny took his horse back and began to move it again toward the cliff. He spurred his horse, allowing it to run freely. The horse quickly ran forward. But right before the cliff the horse came to a sudden stop, and Kenny went flying over the horse’s head and over the edge of the cliff. Luckily he still had hold of the reins. Hanging on the cliff, Kenny looked up at his horse. Its head was bent low between locked, widely spread forelegs. Kenny shouted “Back up, back up!” The horse hesitated, then did what it was told. Kenny slipped upward onto the cliff.
If the man is still on the same cliff, why would Kenny try to catch him by jumping down?
How would you say about this "he brought his horse again to a certain place"? "He took his horse back there"?
