I’m On A Horse

You’re riding a horse. To the right of you is a cliff and in front of you is an elephant moving at the same pace and you can’t overtake it. To the left of you is a hippo running at the same speed and a lion is chasing you. How do you get to safety?

Get off the merry-go-round.

Could you get off and assume the lion is rational and will know that there is more meat on your horse than yourself?

Technically you can turn around as it doesn’t specifiy of which direction the lion is chasing you. The assumption is the lion is behind you, but it could coming in from the left.
