As a child and a kid, I always dreamt to spend time among horses.
It stayed a dream as riding lessons have always been too expensive for my parents and then for me.

I am now lucky to live in an area with lots of horse farms around. I still cannot afford riding lessons, but now, I have a jocker : I am a correspondant for a local newspaper, which means I can show my nose and ask to make articles about their farms and events etc...  bear_thumb  bear_tongue

I had my first opportunity to meet with horses and horse people not long ago for open doors in a friesian horse farm.

Right, I did not ask to ride one, but I could come close to them, which made me very happy!!!!! bear_wub

Almost all horse farms in my area are specialised in racing horses, so discovering that firesian horse farm was a nice surprise. These horses are so beautiful and fantastic!

I made an article about them :

Lucky you.  Fresians are a wonderful breed.  They are not only extremely beautiful, but they also are very well tempered.  Have fun.

Sophie, that is terrific!  Aren't horses magnificent animals?  So glad you were allowed to be around them and write the story!  Don't give up on your dream . . . maybe it won't be too long before you will be sitting in the saddle!

Gorgeous horses!  bear_wub  bear_wub  bear_wub  We are still enjoying the horses we adopted from the rescue last year.  Unfortunately, since my head and neck injury I haven't been able to ride at all.  But they are still amazing creatures to have around.   bear_wub  bear_wub  bear_wub
