Scenic Sunday, SOOC Sunday




Harness Race on the lake Öljaren yesterday. Just for fun and lots of different horsebreeds entered. About 1700 spectators and the ice was about 50 cm's thick. Visit Scenic Sunday  and/or SOOC Sunday

The horses are beautiful, but I worry about the little ones being strong enough to pull people. I suppose they are, but they look so tiny!

I love the action shot- amazing extension on that trot! I would be terrified to trot across ice like that, but they don't seem worried at all!

Cheryl said...

Good composition; way to catch the action. Nice shots!

If you've got to deal with all that snow and ice, you might as well find ways to enjoy it!

Love all the photos of the racing on the ice. Horse racing of any kind is fascinating to me and so very exciting. Especially find the photo of the pony and the "chair sled" interesting. It's amazing how much weight that a horse can pull in relation to its size. Great SOOC photos!
