Airs above the ground 

Looking through Yahoo's photos this week, I found this one of a horse and trainer from the Spanish Alvaro Domecq Riding School (photo taken at Muscat, Oman, during their annual equestrian show for AFP by Mohammed Mahjoub). It reminded me that my sister and I went to see the the Lipizzaner stallions tour this summer and we enjoyed it very much. We had seats right at ringside so we got a sense of how powerful these horses are and how highly skilled their trainers must be to teach the horses the "airs above the ground". I was surprised at how much the horses seemed to appreciate the applause and cheers they got during their performances.
