Smile Fav. type of horse






For those of you interested in "man's earliest transportation vehicle" , what are your favourites ?


I had a phase in my youth when I had a fascination for the American Wild West , tried traditional "cowboy clothes" and even took it upon me to take riding lessons . .




J / k with the pic , I went further than that . .

lol

"Man's earliest form of transportation" still interests me a bit . .

I might add that I hail from Lower-Saxony . .


. . born in a more rural part of the German federal state ( even though mainly raised in Bremen and also lived in other cities . .) and the German federal state of Lower Saxony is famous for its horse keeping . .

This is Lower Saxony's coat of arms . .


Since Lower Saxony is more or less the beginning of Northern Europe ( as opposed to the Alp region ) and the last offshoots of the Alpine area within Germany end here ( the area is called the Northern German plain ) the gaze here gazes towards a never-ending horizon , all flat land . .


( the Alps within Europe were formed when two continental plates in ancient times crashed with each other , forming the high lands . .)


Their last offshoots go deep into Germany and where the more or less 'hilly' landscape ends Northern Europe begins. .

It is totally flat here ( the Netherlands , also on our latitudinal lines , are even located below sea level) . .

So . . in a way no wonder people from Lower Saxony have always had a good time riding along the endless horizon . .


lol . . perhaps my interest in those animals hails from the area from which I originate . .

My pers . favourite brand . .


The Hannoveraner race ( named after Lower-Saxony's capital ) . .


Anybody else here interested ?

Maybe Americans ? Who also live close to their 'country' roots ?

It's easy to see how they inspire devotion and no doubt enmity. They're not just gorgeous, they're quite athletic as well.

Akhal-teke stallion Diger
Well , since their origin is Central-Asia I suppose historically they had to endure quite some things . . The continent of Eurasia has been a battleground between the Aryan race and the Asiatic peoples for eons . .






Like I said , since their home is Central Asia they were probably quite desired for battle in ancient time . .


They surely had to endure much when the rivaling armies of Eurasia collided , that's for sure . .


Sry , couldn't resist w / the pic . .





Topped probably only by the Four Riders Of The Apocalypse . .

You might find it interesting that the "Fury" tv series , originally from the USA , was also broadcast in Germany . . .

I grew up around horses, and still ride occasionally.

To answer your question, warmbloods like the american quarter horse were the most common saddle horses in the 'Old West', the Palomino coat color most desired.
