sundaystills. horses

We went horse riding with friends. Do you see a horse without a rider? That was my horse. I wasn't confident to ride three hours up and down the ravines, and crossing rivers. I came back in a little farm buggy after we reached the beach.






I spy a parent helping her child ride a horse in a country road.

I have to borrow this winning horse photo from the Alexandria Trotting site because I don't have a photo of a horse for this.
I only went to the trotting once with a visitor, we didn't bet on the horses. My friend told me that a friend's dad is a jockey. Trotting doesn't seem to be as much fun as the races. When the Australian Melbourne cup is run, almost every office in New Zealand runs a sweepstack. I have never won once.

The following photos were taken when it wasn't a trotting night. I went to a restaurant at the same premises, and made use of the opportunity to take these photos.

In Malaysia most people relate to horses only in Da Ma Cai ...horse racing for gaming ..

So in the past most older people would buy Horse Tickets..ma piau...and hope to win during the weekends!!

I look at horses as in cowboys and Indians...draught animals etc..
Lovely photos...
