Golegã 2009

Photobucket

One of my favourite time of the year is the Golegã horse festival. A festival dedicated to the horse and specially to the portuguese breed the Lusitano :)

As every year all the family went to spend some days at Golegã to ride horses, be with friends and have a lot of fun with the true portuguese spirit.

Henrique that as been going to Golegã since the year he was born is very anxious to start riding is own horse... Maybe next year :)

Henrique, me and Sete e Picos a Lusitano owned and breed by our friend Eng. Capela. It was our hourse during the festival that we took with us :)

We stayied with our friends from Quinta do Trevo (http://www.quintadotrevo.com/)

1 house; 13 people; 7 Dogs; 7 horses. Quinta do Trevo managed the transportation for Sete e Picos and took care of him while he was at the festival. A very very special thanks to Toninho and Andreia that were fantastic and took care of Isabela during the week while i was working !!!

Can't get more crazy then this !!!!!!!!!!!! Everytime is a good time to celebrate even inside the horse trailer :)

Amazing I am so jealous I aim to attend this in 2010 but I doubt very much that I will be lucky enough to ride in it! I ride a beautiful Hannovarian stallion here in the UK ... but I don't think there is anything that compares to the Golega Horse Fair!

Thank you for sharing, you and your family are very lucky!
