Photographer's Note

I was listening to the radio while driving yesterday and there was an interesting interview about the first public auction ever held of the famous Kladruber horses.

Kladrubers are an original Czech breed protected as the national heritage and they are bread in black and white forms as gala cosier and they are used, for example, to pull Royal carriages in Denmark. The white horses usually serve to nobility, the black ones to the clergy.

The most interesting (for me) was the information about their very special way of trotting. The Kladrubers have a special candence - they lift their knees very high, hence they are trotting very slowly (on a spot) and therefore the nobility in the carriage have enough time to wave to the crowds :-).

This picture was taken under a heavy rain on the Horse festival held in Kuks. The man is performing Garocha (traditional Spanish dance with a pole) as the early origin of the horse breed is in Spain.
