Personal Better late

I never thought about horses nor equestrianism, not for more than 3 minutes, anyway — even if one of the recent posts is about sidewalk riding in Moscow — until a dear friend managed to convince me not only to get out of the city this weekend (not an easy job, people really knowing me are probably shocked already) but go see some horses.

I got a friend.

I started by curiosity and ended up loving every minute of it. Better late than never, they say.

aaawww, the last picture is soo cute ;;)

but anyway, I remember going as a kid (I was about 10) to see some equally beautiful horses somewhere here in Bucharest (on Timisoara blvd.) and also riding one. I was completely petrified to do that last thing, the poor horse was going really slow, but it sure felt like he was galloping. Such a crybaby :P

I thought about erasing that banner out, but I realized it's really unimportant. Press and politics mean nothing in that space, in those moments.

Sponsors have their importance, especially for those sports that are not very popular. I am very fond of horses myself, and I know the costs to take care of such a beautiful animal are very high and so, every amount of money counts... ok, that was a pathetic introduction to my appollogies in doing the wrong association in the wrong context ': | sorry

Don't worry, I wasn't offended. And you're right, the pictures would have been better without the noise of promotional messages.

Where is that? I can remember a school trip to Avrig, where there were some stables with around fifty horses with famous ancestors or something like that. They told us then that the more curved a horses spine is the more noble it is, thus beeing more fit to be ridden. Anyway it was a really nice place and experience.

Wow, beautiful pics indeed. Are they taken near Bucharest, in Corbeanca?
anywayz, if it wasn't for the font, the "Free romania" message works just fine.
Can I save&keep the last picture? I will not publish it somewhere else, just want to have it on my desktop. Can I? 10x.

Yes, Corbeanca indeed.

As for the last one... damn, I thought people will prefer my pictures but then everybody seems to love the one shot by Richard instead. :)

I like all of them, honestly I do, but the last one has something touching: is not only an image, but also a feeling, very tender, very moving, veru peaceful and quiet; is like u almost share the same dream with the horse...
