King Nothing

{Explored}

It's that time of the year again, so you will be seeing some pictures of draft horses again.

 

Every year around carnival in the north of Flanders (Belgium) an event is organized which has its roots way back in history. It is called "goose riding".

 

At this event a goose is suspended by the legs to a cord tied to a high post, and a number of men on horseback, riding full speed, attempt to pull off the head. The one who succeeds is crowned king for that year. Needless to say that in this day and age the goose is killed before the event by a vet.

 

This shot is the king of 2005 posing, or is it the horse?
