Taken at Appleby Fair. After the horse's have been washed in the river, they race them up and down to show buyers what they can do.
I little dangerous for the spectators, but great to watch.

View LARGE if you can be bothered Wink It's much better!

Thanks for looking.

Definitely worth viewing large for the expressions of both the horse and the handler.

I like that shot, particularly as it's a horse dealer I know and haven't seen for about 8 years. What a small world!!

Even better viewed large. I wouldn't dare drive a pony and sulky at the speed they go. LOL!
