Animal Show

Just to display that I never set out to take ugly pictures, I really don’t, I think I am going to post some of the pictures I took at the local Animal Show this weekend. Another thing these pictures prove, in light of the recent debate about our Danish top dressage riders, is that yes we do have a problem with the sport, but luckily, ordinary people still know how to ride their horses…!

Cool kids and ponies, riding a beautiful, well rehearsed Quadrille;

To my great surprise and joy, a Natural Horsemanship instruction, specifically about how not to roll kur your horse, thumbs up!

And because this is Denmark, then came the rain, as the Shires went on;

And then we bolted for the car… Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

    Love me some Friesians, my absolute favorite breed, we don’t have too, too many of them over here but we had one at the stable once, He was the sweetest guy ever!

    All that being said…that darn Fjord foal is too darn cute!!!

      Hehe I got to admit, I was looking at the shires and wondering how big a pasture I would need to have one of those and if my Ferrier would finally disown me if I bought one 😉
      It’s always funny with the different breeds 🙂 I love the heavy cold bloods as well, and I would never, ever want to own one 😉
