Thinking of ... Horses

Continuing on the "when people think of my town" theme, many people might think of horses when they think of Wassenaar. There are stables in the area, a maze of horse riding trails, and it's home to the harness racing course Duindigt.

Some days we'll be home and hear the clop-clop of horses riding right in front of our house.

These horses were grazing last November in a field that is only a 10 minute walk from our home.

3 out of 5 are sheep.
Smart horses (and sheep too).

When you would have been in Wassenaar earlier, you could have seen me riding the horse, I wnet from Monster to Wassenaar over the beach from Scheveningen to Kijkduin, on a horse... You should try this (drive on the back of a horse) its So FANTASTIC!!!

Nice atmospheric photo of the area of Wassenaar, Thatmakes me smile:)

I showed some "road-impressions" come and see my blog.
