I often wander through the streets of our capital and see our Mounted Police or armed forces on horseback, and I'm always reminded just how great the horse is. They stand for hours watching the pedestrians go by, never complaining, calm and relaxed. When I see them I can never resist a pat and I always think they give me that look of “not another tourist, can you not see I’m busy?"
In this video from New York, I just love how chilled the horse is, even nudging the girl when she distracts him with a pat and how unrattled he is by this hilarious pooch. Both dog and horse are brilliant, the dog wants to play and the horse refuses to talk unless the dog is calm putting his nose very slightly out of reach when the dog gets too excited.
Such a lovely contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city and yet again it is the horse that by doing so little, can bring people to a standstill. I hope this brings a smile to your day, I know it cheered up mine!
