Day - 4 L'Ecole Nationale D'Equitation

They had certain calls (in French of course) at which the horses would either rear up or back kick. Occasionally, a horse would throw in a back kick when it wasn't called for which sent me into a fit of giggles every time!

After the show we got to go around the stalls and visit with the horses.

One of the other visitors saw me take this picture and she commented that it was unusual to see a horseman on a bicycle. Of course, I don't really know what she said, but that's what she said. I'm always fascinated that you don't have to speak the same language to understand people.

Okay, some of the horses scared me. We'd be petting them one minute and then they'd throw their heads over like this the next. It's not something I'm used to.

You should have posted the pick of you petting the horse.
