Harness racing is a wonderful thing because, as a result horses are kept and cared for. The pastures stray horses are beautiful to watch.

I remember harness racing at the fair when I was a child. Not nearly as prestigious as this, however. That horse is distracted and looking at you.

Superbe ! Il y a une bonne impression de vitesse avec les roues qui tournent. Le temps ou les sabots touchent le sol semble bien court...
