Shya presents Christie’s Art of the Horse: Shanghai and Hong Kong posted at The Flying Shetlands saying, “Christie’s Auction House in Shanghai and Hong Kong is having a HUGE equine art sale! Come and see some of this rare and excellent horse art!”

Shya presents ~The Breeder’s Cup Trophy ~ Giovanni da Bologna~ posted at The Flying Shetlands. Timely post given the recent running of the Breeders’ Cup.

Welcome to the August 2014 Blog Carnival of Horses

Welcome to the June 2014 Blog Carnival of Horses

Blog Carnival of HorsessWelcome to the June 2014 Blog Carnival of Horses! We have some great blog posts lined up for this month. In fact, with the last leg of the Triple Crown coming up on Saturday, the spotlight is really on the equine community and so many of us bloggers are rooting for him! It’s hard to believe that so many young(er) equestrians haven’t experienced a Triple Crown win in their lifetime, while I was privileged to watch both Affirmed and Secretariat gallop home to victory.

Here are this month’s posts — enjoy!

Susan Friedland-Smith presents Ye Old Jousting Nag, Penelope posted at Saddle Seeks Horse.

Tails From Provence

This banner shot for Tails from Provence is one of the most beautiful photos I’ve seen in a long time. Makes me want to move there!

Martine presents Joucas Equifeel, Part 1 and Joucas Equifeel, Part 2 posted at Tails From Provence.

Isa presents Performing the Horse posted at Horses for Discourses saying: “

The idea that Australians have a special and significant relationship with the horse has been around for a long time. From the 19th century poetry of ‘Banjo’ Patterson to the figure of the stockman in the opening ceremony of the 2000 Sydney Olympics, the horse features strongly in constructions of Australian national identity. The ‘Horses for discourses’ blog is a place to discuss some of these ideas.

I am a PhD student at the Australian National University in Canberra, and I really enjoy chasing tangents! While the distractions I post on here may not be directly related to my PhD research, they nonetheless allow me to encounter different ideas, which help in shaping my thoughts.”

Whiskey Ranch-Horse presents The Latest Buzz posted at County Island.

Suzanne presents Ghosts of Injuries Past posted at Confessions of an AA Event Rider and Convicted Overthinker.
