Horsing around


The last in my Bar Beach series, a horse rider at the beach. Fun seekers pay token amounts to ride on horse back at most beach resorts in Lagos.

Woah! this looks like fun if a little scary! Isn't he bareback? And the horse looks pretty frisky.

That horse looks underweight (I'd say 2.0 on the Henneke BCS) and too small for the rider. I understand people on holiday like to go for 'novel experiences' such as beachside horse riding, but many of these establishments put money as their priority, and not the horses welfare. You really need to research where you go, because this photo demonstrates exactly what happens when people hand over money without thinking of the animal's health and wellbeing.
