Friol Horse Show

This is an annual event in my local town, with a mix of entertainment, horse selling and competitions. It is held in the market place. The weather is rainy today but this didn't stop the crowds. The Galicians love their horses.
The height that the grey horse achieved when it jumped in the air and kicked backwards was incredible. You can just see the feet of the man supervising it on the left.
The pony was just as well trained and could lay down and play dead as well as rear up on command.
The result of many hours hard work I am sure.
