Arabians are the most intelligent and gentle horses ever bred, which is amazing when you figured they were designed as war horses.
I think it's those soulful eyes that get me the most. Bill became a fan that day as well.
Of course he was petting anything furry since they are without a pet in their house. Hmmm, I think it's time for a cat or dog soon.
The front of the building had these great sculptures of horses to admire.
|As you can see, this sculpture is huge!|
We were able to watch competitions in reining, sidesaddle, cattle cutting, harness racing and jumping.
|What do you mean "cattle cutting"? I don't like the sounds of this!|
It was the perfect day to go as it wasn't so terribly hot and that made being outside pleasant while we watched these magnificent creatures perform.
Many of the events took place inside the air conditioned hippodrome as well.
It brought back a lot of fond memories of the horses in my life. As much as I enjoyed that, I think we'll stick to cats now.
Long Live the Queen of Horses
