The Equestrian

Sunday Feature - Another Place, Another Time

How old would you guess this boy is? 8 years old? 10 years old?
I remember this scene quite clearly.
This kid knew how to handle a very spirited horse.
This Camel Fair was held on outskirts of Cairo on Christmas Day (possibly 1987).

This are the better travel photo's. Just as it is and not special for the tourists. Great one Wayne

Nothing wrong with kids learning to ride a horse. Got my first horse when I was about seven. By the time I was 8 or 9 would ride any horse. Great photo of a beautiful horse and rider.

What??? No parent hovering to make sure the little tyke doesn't fall or get nipped??? Such independence...this would never do (in the States) today!!! Why he just might get hurt!!!

We've (the States) gone a tad overboard in "protecting" our kids these days...

Great shot of the rider and his horse.
