Not a Stirrup in sight: SquareUp (15)

I’ve looked hard at the images I have from the Hungarian plains and the Magyar horsemen at the Puszta…I can’t see that they use stirrups, and articles that I have read suggest that they don’t. They are seriously talented horsemen:

  1. what a fantastic photograph, more like a painting. Will pop back again shortly to see it in all its glory on my larger screen

  2. Well, no ‘stirrup’, no ‘up’. I’d say ‘fail’, if it weren’t such a great photo 😉

  3. You’ve excelled yourself with today’s up, Sue, and that is a beautiful shot 🙂 🙂

  4. The blue colour of their costumes is so rich, Sue. The Mongols used no stirrups, and they managed to conquer half of the known world at the time.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. That’s a great photo.

  6. Oh how fun is your title and photo for today 😀

  7. Of course I love this. It appears that they’re riding bareback. Is that right?

    What a great photo, Sue. Wow…riding bareback!

  9. Gorgeous, Sue – what colours! And once a horse girl – I would have fallen off without stirrups and – bareback!

  10. I must agree with Becky, it really does look like a painting. Very good image Sue 🙂

  12. Fantastic color on this photo. Great observation too! It looks like an oil painting. 🙂
