Horse Dancing


I love animals (dogs, cats, tortoises, etc). But, I've always had a special spot in my heart for horses. I started riding about as soon as I could walk. I remember every year asking for a pony (then when I was older a horse) for Christmas. Sadly, Santa couldn't carry a pony in his sleigh, so I didn't get my first horse until I was 21. There's a certain bond between people and their animals that's really hard to describe. I found a remarkable video on youtube that shows Dutch horse trainer Wim Vonck "dancing" with one of his horses. It's really beautiful!

hi, this horse is really gorgeous, it's a lovely picture, it reminds me a race (is it like this for animals? if you don't know what I mean, it's the kind of the horse! :D) we've got in the north of the France (where I live), it's called "boulonnais". Those are really beautiful, you know, they look strong and everything, just like the one on your picture.

Hi Alex,
The photo pictured is of a Fell pony. They are from your neck of the woods (Cumbria).

Wonderful video. I had to wonder about the traditional Irish music, but it all went so well together.
