Giddy-up!

Caught this fellow last weekend. He was warming up his ponies for another day of cart rides along the Sava River. Although it looks like he's whipping them hard, he's not. Just a little snap in the air. This fellow also has ponies to ride, and they appear to be very well cared for.

I've never seen cart rides with poneys. Here, they are usually with horses. It looks like a great day to take one.

Superb photograph! Everything works here - sense of motion, beautiful horses, colorful wagon, man in action! Just great!

I'd say more, but I'll probably end up looking like the south end of one those horses heading north!

Nothing like a bit of personal economic ingenuity. Even horses need to earn their keep.
