Skyrim Riddle: Do you know the answer?

Question

Below is a description of a bug I ran into, and how I solved it.  The solution is in the "Spoiler" button.  See if you can answer the riddle before you look at the solution!

 

So there I was with my 3 followers--Vilja (from Vilja mod), Zora (from iNPCs mod), and Lydia (stock follower).  We were riding our horses in East March making our way north to Windhelm.  After riding across the bridge to Windhelm we dismounted and entered the city.  It's the first time I've been in Windhelm, so I spent a day there completing a few quests and keeping warm (Frostfall mod) as well as fed and rested (RnD mod).  I increased my smithing and decided that I needed to get some supplies from my horse (CH mod).  So I went to the city exit and there's where my troubles began.  Instead of appearing on the bridge the game put me INSIDE the bridge (below it), but I was able to walk out of the bridge down to the river where I made my way over to the docks and back into the city.  I tried exiting the city but the same thing happened!  Googling the problem came up with nothing useful.

 

Well, I finally figured out what was going on.  CAN YOU GUESS WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS WITHOUT LOOKING AT THE SPOILER?

 

 

 

The problem was that one of my follower's horses was standing on the steps at the very exit point where I needed to appear when exiting the city.  The game engine was smart enough to know that I can't appear inside the horse, but instead of moving the horse or moving me somewhere else on the bridge, it put me in the closest spot to the exit point which was UNDER the horse inside the bridge. Moving the horse solved the problem.

I've had this happen before: the weird spawn point, as you surmised usually due to pathing/crowding issues. To resolve it, I save the game, then reload, this usually fixes everything as the data is reloaded. This fixes glitches like the occasional floating utensil or other items in crowded interiors that can sometimes occur.

As I recall I actually did try saving and then reloading but it persisted, so I kind of got scared that my save game was getting corrupted or something.

As far as waiting a while, I guess I never thought of that.
