I love horses; they're graceful, strong and supple. I love the rich sleekness of their coats, their long flowing tails, the super-soft part of their nostrils which feels strangely like new born babies' skin and yes, even their smell. Growing up I rode horses as a competitive sport, however, horse riding is also a popular recreational activity and great for improving fitness and co-ordination.
