Apassionata 2009; Grand Voyage.

I was watching this wonderful horse show in Helsinki, Finland in the last Saturday. Now I think I would share some of the pics that I took there. I'm sorry for the quality and the size of the pictures, our camera really sucks and I didn't manage to get almost any good pictures so most of that have been caught from stopped video clips. So have your magnifying glasses and take a look:

The beginning of the show with Friesians:
Alku.jpg Alku2.jpg Alku3.jpg

There was also a girl dancing with her horse in the begining:
Usva.jpg Usva2.jpg

The theme of the show was a trip around world. These horses and riders represent Spain, the country of fiery life:
Tulishow.jpg Tulishow3.jpg Tulishow2.jpg

The Far East. The reddish picture represents probably China. In the 2nd picture the helper is keeping a target and the rider hit it with a bow:

Continuing...


"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

And then there's Iceland and Icelandic horses. The 3rd picture is interesting: there are sparklers bonded on horses' front legs. Even if the pic is shabby that looked really funky in real life:

And back to the oriental life. I think that represents Turkey:
Turkki.jpg Turkki2.jpg

These two pics describes obviously European riding culture and some kind of dressage:

There were also something that I can't categorize with any country or continental. One of them was this young lady with her foals. Those foals were sooo cute in real life:
Varsat.jpg Varsat2.jpg Varsat3.jpg

Still continuing...

This little fella was so adorable. He's some kind of mini pony who can sit and the point you wiht his hoof:

Of course there was also Wild West there. The first one is almost the only "proper" pic that I managed to took:
Cowboy.jpg Cowboy2.jpg

At that stage when the show was a little over halfway the battery of my camera ran out so I couldn't manage to immortalize every part of the show but focused to watch it myself. I still managed to turn the camera on and took these pics when the show was coming to the end and performers came at the arena together saying goodbye:
Loppu.jpg Loppu2.jpg

Thanks CDT. It was a quite the show. I've never seen before how horse walks with two legs several meters or how a rider goes down one side of a horse, then growls under its stomach and get back on the saddle on the other side. And all that when the horse is galloping .

The only thing that I hope is that I'd have had a better camera with me. Actually I took some video clips with my camera because the quality of them was better than pics that I tried to took without flash (it was forbidden to use flash) but I think I can't release them because actually filming was forbidden too.
