    Default Have never seen anything quite like this?? Too cute!!

    The combination of the architecturally gorgeous indoor, plus the general merriment, along with the music - just too cute

    There sure are some beautiful horses in that bunch! I can't tell if they are wearing shoes?

    Looks like they were just ridden, saddles pulled off and turned loose.
    That many horses, around 16, in such a small space seems a bit crowded.

    That one smaller bay with white socks is not very sociable, all he wants to do is find a good spot to roll.

    Our qh are not as graceful, but are more active and quick when they play.
    They used to leave our TBs standing there wondering where they went.

    It was like watching little kids in a pool

    I'd like to go ahead and order one of each to be delivered to my non-existent barn, please!

    I loved that little chestnut with chrome that kept spiking his tail the first half of the video.

    they all appeared to be shod in front and barefoot behind.

    Cool old riding stable!

    I did some searching for de Hollandsche Manege (Royal Dutch Riding School), and came up with this:

    Walk through video of the building:

    I am guessing the video person is just outside the ring. Otherwise I am very impressed at their ability to hold their ground!!

    Some insite as to what's going on.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KtlMz-J6E4

    The description under the video when translated using the google translate tool reads:

    "Every morning, the horses just loose in the box of the Hollandse Manege"

    I'm guessing that they have no turn out, and the ring is used to give the horses some "free time".

    Makes me want to visit Amsterdam...

    I must be going crazy from all my studying but I found this hilarious!! So many personalities all in one little area... I'm thinking that's what horses would be like on a night out... some running around, some 'breakdancing' (rolling), some grumpy haha wow thanks for sharing.

    Michael Matson posted this on FB and someone replied that the Dutch riding school is right in the city and that as such there is not turnout or pasturage. This is playtime! What a spectacular arena.

    Love this! Thank you so much for sharing it. Every time I watch it, I see something else. Did you notice the people-loving-pony who just hangs at the gate getting pettings from about the 1:15 mark on?

    Adorable! Everyone is full of beans..

    That one chestnut with the raised tail seems to be going..."what the heck is going on here". Maybe he's an introvert. And you can tell who the rabble-rousers are.

    Thanks for posting. Made my day.

    Edited to say: I've never met a horse who has been worked, then bathed/hosed down who doesn't want a good roll. I've just never seen so many of them in closed quarters at one time. What a hoot!

    All I could think of was, "accident waiting to happen".
    In my defense, I had to put down my mare after her pasture mate kicked her in the shoulder and broke it, so I am biased.
    Good thing they don't seem to be shod behind.

    But the place is gorgeous, and the horses aren't too shabby either!

    I live on the flood plain. In flood months, turnout space is pretty limited. Our crew hangs out like this. It's funny when they are first turned out, everyone has a different "thing I want to do more than ANYTHING", be it rolling, galloping, back-crackin' bucking, etc. Doesn't take too long for them to buddy up and just start chatting/scratching/moseying, but those first few minutes are a really fun circus. Usually no stall-cleaning gets done till they have been out for a while: too entertaining to watch!
