Horse inspired Car

Horses inspired poets, writers, artists…What else? You will be surprised to hear but not only those people of art but also the ones of car industry! Any proofs? Yepp – one of the most amazing cars of all times Ford’s Mustang! It still gives me goosebumps that the cars of modern technology, despite more and more new chances and discoveries, still try to be at least like a horse!!!

Mustang

Tolubay Synchy, the master of horses, used to make a stallion out of a weak colt, as we said the last time. Because he was good at pointing the weak and strong parts of any horse and according to them, he would fight the weaknesses and develop the strengths of the horse.

Now I wonder, what if the horse is strong and fast itself? What if it is so wild as Mustang from the movie “Spirit”? Would he be able to make that stubborn one obey him? Just this part of the movie made me think of that so much:

Master of Horses

Horses are great friends of people. Therefore, there are so many professionals who are interested in taking care of them, getting more and more knowledge about them and so on.

Silk Road is also pretty rich with such people. For instance, Tolubay Synchy, a wise man from Kyrgyz nation, the nation which is said to be closest with horses. So, Tolubay had an incredible talent of classifying horses. He was familiar with any type of horses and knew how to take care of them according to their qualities. This was the reason for his success in raising the fastest and finest horses in his region.

Tolubay Synchy could not only recognize horses, but also predict its future. If he thought that the horse had a potential to become the great one, that definitely came true, even if the horse looked too weak! He was able to prove his opinions several times, so others had no more doubts about his skills.

“Special” sausage

I know, it is a bit mean of me to write this post here, but I just could not keep this pretty interesting fact a secret. Just imagine the dear animals – horses that you are fond of being slaughtered and eaten by people…

I know, pretty heartbreaking… However, in some countries, such Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and other Central Asian regions, the horsemeat is said to be a nice delicacy and is eaten with love. It is not, of course, in their daily menus, such as beef or chicken.

The meat is usually eaten in the form of sausage. Just imagine a regular sized sausages, which now contains the horsemeat. In the countries said above, this product is given a name as “Kazy” or “Chuchuk”.

CBT?


Yes, I also was wondering what in the world it means when I first heard about it. My guesses were that maybe it is some kind of a world organization or funde. It turned out to be something interesting in the world of tourism.

Community Based Tourism – the tours organized not only by agencies but with the help of local community itself. They work together in order to give the tourists the taste of real life of citizens in certain country.

In my case, I met this word during horseback riding tours in Kyrgyzstan. They offer tourists to visit certain places, where they can enjoy horseback riding the most. Once they get there, local professionals will meet them and take the lead for riding. If there is any need, they even teach visitors how to ride and do their best to help.

Year of Horse


It is incredible that I just now, on the day of New Year remembered that this was the year of a Horse according to Chinese zodiac and in just several hours it will be left behind!

In Kyrgyzstan, there were held so many fierce games and competitions with horses, since they are the most favorite and treasured creatures of Kyrgyz nation.

Chinese people can tell about the one’s personality through their zodiacs, so let us check out what they say about the people, who were born under the zodiac of a horse:

They say that people under this zodiac are so sociable and friendly. Just like horses, they are strong towards their way to success. They know their own rights and are pretty stubborn while making decisions in group. However, this does not mean that they do not like working in groups. Instead, they prefer crowds and enjoy popularity among friends.

On the other hand, their ambitions may disappear right after one failure and there is a danger of pessimism and laziness afterwards. Another bad quality of them is that they cannot save money; the results of wasting money do not bother them.

Horses in Dances

How in the world?! Well, horses in games, they are in movies, the games are not interesting without them either! Here is another part – dances connected with horses! This now Really proves the tight connection between Kyrgyz nation and beautiful horses!

The dance is called “Kara Zhorgo”, which is translated as “Black Horse”. Enjoy this amazing dance and music, which is the “visit card” of Kyrgyz parties nowadays!

Horse in Movies

If you are a horse fan, then you must love everything connected with it, including horse accessories, uniforms for horseback riders, books about horses and of course movies. Today I would like to recommend you a brilliant movie about horses, which is called “Secretariat”.

The movie is about the winner of “Triple Crown” horse races in 1973, Secretariat. The movie touched many hearts not only for its breathtaking moments but also for the fact that it is based on the real story. I am sure that the deep relationship between that horse and its owner Penny will leave you amazed.
