Performance of Dramatic Elegance

Standard

With the International Horse Show in Olympia, London coming soon in December, I thought I would post some photos I took at last years show.  

In addition to the show-jumping and dressage events, the show featured “The Lusitano Ride” from Portugal, where ten riders and their horses performed with precision and dramatic elegance to portuguese music.  Every move perfectly co-ordinated, beautifully performed…

The show also featured Lorenzo, the Flying Frenchman, who stands on two horses, while he “commands” another four.  The six horses gallop and jump, all perfectly co-ordinated, with Lorenzo still standing, with one foot on each of two horses!

Then there was the clown with his cute pony…

Christmas Finale

And of course, given the time of year, there was the Christmas finale, which was magical…

There was also a christmas shopping village with many equestrian stalls.

Unintentionally I managed to dress in a way that fit in with the equestrian theme, with my leggings and knee-high boots – so that was lucky!  So if you’re planning to go this year and are stuck for what to wear, you could always try that!

Seven MORE Songs From My Happy, Chirpy and Cheerful Playlist…

Standard

Circle of Life…  How can we ever have a “happy and cheerful playlist” without this song?!!!

***

Aane Char Aane…this ones from a Bollywood movie called “Lage Raho Munna Bhai”… I couldn’t find a version with English subtitles… but it really is a lovely movie and the context of this song essentially is:  A group of people in the later years of their life decide that they want to make the most of this last quarter of their life and live it to the fullest!!!  One of the guys finally marries his childhood sweetheart!  🙂

Musu Musu Hasi…  this ones from a Bollywood movie… I couldn’t find a version with English subtitles… but it really is a lovely and cheerful song… The song is apparently based on a Nepalese song (the first line is in Nepalese, while the rest of the song is in Hindi) and the lyrics mean (beginning only):  Smile a little for me, smile a little for me, smile a little, smile a little, oh happiness, share your sadness with me and take happiness from me, I’ve become yours now and you’ve become mine, Smile a little for me, smile a little for me, smile a little, smile a little, oh happiness….

Let There Be Love… I love Nat King Cole and this has to be one of my favourites…

I really hope you loved these and they cheered you up, or if you were already cheerful, I hope they made you more cheerful  🙂
