A Sunday walk with a difference.

On a recent dog walk we were surprised to find ourselves
 sharing the lanes and tracks with some unusual traffic.

Urban cowboy!

I don't know where they came from or where they were going.
Were they on the way to a competiton, in training, or simply good
friends out horse riding and carriage driving together?

What a great way to see the countryside!

All I do know is that it was lovely to meet them all,
 however briefly, on a Sunday morning in Normandy.

  5. How funny to see the man with the cell phone talking while riding.

  6. How much fun! I love trail riding. I wish you had joined them! Maybe next time. :D

  7. I love this! Looks like fun.

    What is hanging in the trees in the second to last picture? It looks like balls of some sort.

  8. That's the thing about getting out amongst it. Neer know what you'll find until you do.

  9. Looks like the lane was a bit crowded on Sunday. ;-)
    Makes me want to take off for a ride. ~ Sarah

  10. Not a sight that we would see here in the states, unless of course, we would be walking in Amish Country in Pennsylvania (state) where the Amish don't use any modern conveniences at all. So, it looks like you had a lovely walk in the countryside.

  11. These photos remind me of being in Killarney, Ireland. everything is so green! Glad you crossed paths with these folks and horses...just another day in your neighbourhood!

  12. hi Maggie,

  14. The countryside offers up such wonderful surprises. You never know what you will see.

  15. That is really neat! We see horses where we live all the time but a horse and carriage and they looked wondrous! Thanks for sharing! Visiting from The Bunny Hop

  16. Great photos! Love the "urban cowboy" shot!

    One of the properties behind ours have horses. Occasionally, we'll see the kids riding along the property lines!
