This should be Eurocommerce Berlin according to the number it had, but unfortunately Berlin is grey and not bay, so it is a wild guess which horse this is, most probably also an Eurocommerce under Schroder.

The same horse as above, it had a bright red ribbon in its tail, probably for good luck.

This is Broere Phoenix, a dutch bred dressage horse under Kirsten Beckers. This horse did not contest at Chio, but most likely was there for experience and training.

CHIO Rotterdam 21 June, the Netherlands

Just before I went to Spain with Chris, I spend a few hours at CHIO Rotterdan taking photies of the many horses there. I took my brother's Canon 400D with me and had fun working with it. I took many photies and selected about 27 good ones, so I just posted the first lot. Hopefully all the names are correct.

Number 213 Constance Menard with Lianca, a former circus horse
Number 244 Imke Schellekens-Bartels with Sunrise

Again number 244

Some more photies of spain

I hope everyone is enjoying the photies, and to possibly enjoy you even more, here are some more photies. The last ones though, but for more beautiful photies, have a look on Chris his site.
Next up will be some photies from 21 June CHIO Rotterdam, a horse event for showjumping and dressage at high levels. My brother was so kind to lend me his Canon 400D *G*


A lemon tree with many lemons, it amazed me that many plants in southern DRY Spain hold so much water.

Holiday photies

Hi everyone,

Chris and I survived southern Spain *G* it was between 30 and 40 degrees during the day and about 20 at night. We had only a few drops of rain and that was during the night. A nice breeze made it durable enough to do things during the morning, afternoon and evening. Especially the evenings were beautiful with a nice sunset and a bright moon.
Below some photies of the holiday, so enjoy

Our rental car, a fiat punto which was a surprisingly good car. Good handling, spacious and fast, but the brakes were a bit weird

Chris climbing, I think he climbed about everything he could climb :S

And the house :) where we spend the week, thanks to chris's parents
(More photies will follow shortly)
