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!

An Evening in London

Standard
An Evening in London

 

 

 

 

What’s great about taking an evening walk in central London?

  1.  You can enjoy great views of landmark sites all lighted up.
  2.  There is often a good musical accompaniment with someone busking nearby.
  3.  The atmosphere is more relaxed, even leisurely, in sharp contrast to the hustle and bustle and the “I need to get somewhere important” rush of the city during the day.
  4.  It can be a romantic end to a date.
  5.  Seeing all the tourists reminds you to appreciate what is around you and to “live in the moment”.
  6.  Its light exercise that doesn’t feel like exercise.

Here are some photos I took on my evening walk in London…..
