family on horsecart 3

Why pedal your bike when you can hitch a ride with your friends on their horse-drawn wagon?  And it makes it so much easier to talk and socialize when you’re not winded!

I like the intimacy of this small group, presumably a family, traveling down the road together.  Even though we can’t see most of their faces, it’s conveyed through their posture and body language.  You can tell that they’re comfortable being with each other, and sharing close quarters.

I mentioned in another post that I rarely saw a horse in Cuba that was shod, but this one was.  Look closely and you’ll see horseshoes!  I like to see people who caring about each other as well as their animals.

Happy trails!



  1. Lovely photo and story. Great to see that the horse is well cared for.

    • Hi TET,

      I’m glad you liked the image and the writing.

      Most of the horses I saw in Cuba appeared to be well taken care of, but definitely on the small and skinny side. And horseshoes seemed to be the exception rather than the rule. A bit different from what I’m used to seeing in the US.
