horses & thanksgiving

in face of continuous raining we went to the kiekeberg museum today to celebrate thanksgiving & – mainly – to visit the horse day. we saw lots of different horses, so beautiful some of them. i saw friesian horses – one of the most beautiful horse breeds to me. there were several shows like western riding, circus stunts and so on. i was totally fascinated by the presentation of “natural horsemanship” – a phrase new to me but describing exactly the way of natural non-violent interaction with horses i am looking for! (wanna read something more about it? – visit monty roberts homepage or this page of a german horse trainer.) it was phantastic to see the girls & women communicating with the horses, working WITH them, so obviously being a team each with her horse. relating with the horse. made me happy to watch them 🙂
