Circus Horses

You know how it is, the new year sometimes gets you thinking about the direction of your life.... I started to think about what I wanted to be when I was a child. The first thing I wanted to do was to was to be in the circus, and ride circus horses...I remember quite sensibly thinking that it would be quite hard to get that job as I didn't have my own pony to practice on. So I figured maybe being a tightrope walker would be my way in... I could practice at home right?!! Sadly I never did make it to the circus and my job choices got more and more sensible as I got older..

1) Riding horses in the circus
2) Riding horses as an event rider
3) Groom/riding instructor
4) Vet
5) Art therapist

So I did an Art degree and now I'm on my way to deciding on something..... But for now I want to think about circus horses, much more magical and fun!

Happy Sunday all! :-)

  1. how wonderful the innocence of childhood and what beautiful images you have chosen. i used to shock the family saying that i wanted to be a stripper! i am an artist antique dealer and the closest i have got to stripping is a dresser! happy 2011...

  2. wonderful images! i think you can become the art therapist who rides horseback from client to client. maybe?

  3. Hey tami! Well that is an idea! It would be a great way to unwind between jobs wouldn't it?! :-)
