Photographer's Note

Shot at the same location as this picture and this one at the horse trotting races in Mahon, Menorca, here we see the stables and a keen competitor fetching his horse to be harnessed to the lightweight chariot which they use in this sport.

These "trotting races" have been held in both Mahon and Ciutadella in Menorca for over 200 years and competitors must race as fast as they possibly can with their horses trotting. Breaking into a gallop results in immediate disqualification from a race.

This picture was taken during a very instructive and enjoyable week's photographic holiday in Menorca with Philip Dunn - highly recommended - we learned a lot from Philip and met some other wonderful people there too!

Shot in RAW and converted and edited in PSE6.
