The Horse in the Neighbour’s Garden

Our neighbour, Marlene, has just invited us to see a ‘surprise’ guest at her daughter’s birthday bash; this most exquisite chestnut Andalusian horse. It’s undergoing training by its handler, Lorenzo, but despite that it managed some pretty impressive dressage moves (if that’s the right terminology) around the garden. It still seemed a tad on the unpredictable side which added to its wild beauty and my nervousness (I love the idea of riding horses, but they seem so big, fast and damn powerful – and Christopher Reeve always pops into my head the minute I get close to one).

Still, watching the magnificent beast canter around Marlene’s garden was a pleasant little interlude on a Saturday afternoon, but clearly not for Whiskas who has never seen an animal of such immensity before and is still in hiding.

An Andalusian beauty

    He’s an absolute beaut, isn’t he. Apparently he’s a pure bred Andalusian, so a real noble fellow.
