Equitation / Equitación

In English:

Afternoon on a horse stable

I am devoting this post to my friend Christian in Chile in the city of Concepción. After earthquake I tried to contact him be sending some messages, but no reply. Christian’s daughter (Camille) rides as my granddaughter. We got acquainted by showing our YouTube videos about riding and commenting them. How their life is now, I do not know. I really do hope that they are alright! Latest news is that yesterday I got message that Christian and his family are do well. Only his house is without electricity and water.

My granddaughter has her own horse (Tara), a mare which she is taking of good care. My photos are nearly one year old, but does it matter?

En español:

Tarde en un caballerizas

Dedico este post a mi amigo Christian qui vive en Chile en la ciudad de Concepción. Después del terremoto traté de contactar con él enviando unos mensajes, pero no tengo la respuesta. La hija de Christian (Camille) cabalga como mi nieta. Me familiarizaba con él a través de nuestros videos de YouTube mostrando equitación y comentandolos. ¿Cómo es su vida ahora, no lo sé. Espero verdaderamente que están bien! Últimas noticias son que ayer tengo el mensaje de que Christian y su familia están bien. Sólo su casa carece de electricidad y agua.

Mi nieta tiene su propio caballo (Tara), una yegua que está cuidando bien. Mis fotos son casi un año de edad, pero qué importa?

En francais:

Après-midi á une ferme du cheval

Je consacre ce post à mon ami Christian au Chili dans la ville de Concepción. Après le tremblement de terre J’ai essayé de le contacter, envoyer quelques messages, mais aucune réponse. La fille de Christian (Camille) chevauche comme ma petite-fille. Nous avons fait connaissance en montrant nos vidéos de YouTube à propos de l’équitation et les commentant. Comment la vie de Christian et sa famille est maintenant, je ne le sais pas. J’espère vraiment qu’ils vont bien! Dernières nouvelles sont que hier, j’ai obtenu le message que Christian et sa famille se portent bien. Seule sa maison est sans électricité et d’eau.

Ma petite-fille a son propre cheval (Tara), une jument dont d’elle s’occupe bien. Mes photos, elles ont prisé à peu près un an, mais est-ce important?

  1. Bonjour Matti,
    Heureuse que tu aies enfin eu des nouvelles de tes amis du Chili et que les dégâts soient finalement assez minimes pour eux.
    Ces chevaux sont bichonnés pour affronter l’hiver. Une belle passion et de jeunes cavalières dont on partage la joie…
    Très bon week-end.

  2. Bonjour Marion.

    Oui, je suis heureux quen mon ami à Chile va bien! Les chevaux ont une couverture, puisque la nuit precedente était très froid et il y avait le vent polaire et on peut pas chevaucher tout de suit. C’est pouquoi ma fille promene avec Tara pendant ce temps-là quand ma petite-fille change de vêtements de d’équitation.

    Bon week-end á toi aussi.

    • Hi Jackie.

      Thank You. It was a sunny afternoon on horsestable, but cold, because there was winter wind coming from the North. During the day sun showed that it has power to warm and so the area of stables was later “full” of mud. As You saw my daughter warmed Tara by walking with it back and forth while my granddaughter dressed her riding costume. Then my granddaughter warmed it on glacial rink before the steeplechase, she participated. To me it was an experience to smell stable, to check how young riders were preparing to contest and so on.

      Yes, I am very happy when I heard that my friend and his family are Okay, I was so worried. Yesterday (Thursday) my Spanish lessons were cancelled, because my Chilean teacher had problems to return to Finland after spending two weeks vacation in Chile with her family. I hope that she will be back next Thursday!

      Happy weekend to You also.

    • Hi Jeffrey.

      So nice to read Your comment. Thank You. My granddaughters horse was at quite far distance and there were lack of light, so I had to use ISO 3200 and full focal length and when photographing I thought how mangage to take the photo just she is jumping, because all happened very fast. The basset was nice, I like it too.

  5. Good evening, Matti
    all of the photos I really liked it. Sunshine is advantageous if one makes such shots. The color reproduction is brilliant. The horse of your granddaughter like it very much. <>
    Now I wish you that your friend see you again soon. An earthquake is terrible. I saw it about 15 years ago in Cologne. Thank God it was not as bad as elsewhere in the world. The earthquake came at night. Everything shook, a loud noise was heard, and I woke up. I did not know what it was. In the news after it was reported. I can understand what is going on in your friends. I very much hope for you and your friends that everything is good again. The next pictures I look at again.
    I wish you and Anja all the best, happiness and health to your daily routes. Thank you for your comments. Dear greetings Christel

    • Hi Christel.

      Thank You commenting. My granddaugter is going to Germany starting next summer for six months. She is also going into the school there with her friend and what is the best she is taking Tara with her, so she and her frend can ride together! She started to learn German, since five years ago, instead of English as a first foreign language in school, then English as second foreign language and Spanish as third foreign language, all these in addition to Swedish which obligatory to everybody. Here we have to learn many languages, because we are a small nation. The place where she is going is somewhere nearby Osnabrück.

      Happy weekend.

  7. Tara is a very beautiful horse! Very tall! Having her is so good for your granddaughter, too.

    I hope you have a very good weekend!

    • Hi Montucky.

      Thank You commenting. Tara’s height at withers is 172 cm or 5 ft and 7.7 inches, so it is really quite tall. Happy weekend to You also.

  9. Maravillosas las dos, en primer lugar tu nieta y su yegua, que bueno que se dedique a la equitación, es un deporte maravilloso. Se puede apreciar que la yegua tiene muy buena alzada o sea altura para saltar…, te dejo un relato del hijo de un amigo que practica Endurance…
