Anna

Anna

There's often horseback riders at the ancient grave field in Jordbro and this was no exception. This is Anna and her horse Rose. Anna is from Haninge and has her horse at the Hässlingby stable (where I was chased by a few horses a couple of weeks ago). As Anna has a family, and a job to keep her busy, the horseback riding is the one hobby she has time for. Speaking of horses, there are more than 120 companies in Haninge involved in the horse industry. And more than 2000 horses. The municipality is planning a horse trail that will connect all parts of Haninge, which is good news for all horse lovers. And it looks like a new race track might be built near the Berga agricultural school in a few years time.

Most interesting! She would well in Ocala, which is the horse capital of the "world"? Nah...but close!

Excellent portrait, Steffe!

Steffe - seems like everyone is Haninge is just horsin' around! Do you have a horse riding helmet?

And a darling little girl...is that her daughter?

Was this horse part of the "gang" that chased you?

Steffe said...

Yes, I believe it was her daughter brattcat. If it was the same horse it was much friendlier this time! I don't even have a bicycle helmet Leif. There was an article in the morning paper about the new race track. It now stands between four places, and Stav in Tungelsta is one of them.

Just excuse my ignorance of anything about horses, but isn't she riding without a saddle? Is it normal?

Steffe said...

I don't think so Mr. Poet, but I hear it's good for the horse's back and for the balance of the rider.

Another nice photo....
You should print a book about Haninge and the life there.
I am so impressed also about the composition of this photo!

Tried horse riding in Namibia, discovered I'm not a natural. Nice shot.

Lois said...

Anna is pretty and Rose is quite a handsome horse. Nice shot!
