  1. It used to be a common sight in my village before the riding school closed down. It must be a lot milder than it is here - the thought of going out in just a T-shirt gives me the shivers!

  3. Horses and buggies are part of daily life here in the epicentre of Mennonite culture in Ontario.

  7. I live in the country and see this from time to time. That horse must be used to traffic.

  18. The only time you see horses in the city are parades or the odd carriage ride outfit.

  21. A one horse powered vehicle. Love it!! My kids were at a rodeo one time and so they rode their horses into the small town and rode right up to the drive thru window at the local Dairy Queen----after ice cream I imagine

  22. There is one of the long parks along one of our ravines where you see horses but other than that it is only police horses who always are happy to stop and visit for a bit!

  23. We have a riding school close by so can often see riders and horses around.
    Isn't this horse a nice colour.

    All the best Jan

  25. Normally we would see them here along country roads or on the beach.

  26. That's a surprise. We get riders in our neighborhood but it's rural and there are trails nearby.

  27. Fun shot, Bill. And it reminds me that HITS will be hitting our town this month with most of the riders looking much like this one. Re a faux dog: Trump has issued an executive order to start a breeding program for fake dogs. He can't tell the difference.

  28. I had to chuckle...one day on the road near our house we saw a horse and rider as well, but this was in full cowboy regalia and so different from your English rider! :-)
