Holy Blood Procession flag holders on a horseback riding vacation in Bruges, Belgium
Horses in Bruges, Belgium
While I didn’t have a chance to go on a horseback riding vacation in Bruges, Belgium, I did see many gorgeous horses during my visit and wanted to share photos and a YouTube video that I made during my trip.
If you have not yet been to Bruges, you may want to rent the movie “In Bruges” with Colin Farrell. Here you will see beautiful scenery of Bruges. As a horse lover, my ears always perk up when I hear the distant sound of horses hooves clip clopping on the cobblestone streets. When in Bruges, take a horse drawn carriage ride. The entire city has earned a UNESCO World Heritage ranking so there are plenty of sites to see.
Holy Blood Procession in Bruges, Belgium
I was fortunate to have visited Bruges on May 13 for the Holy Blood Procession. While not a catchy name for a lovely religious parade, the horses and riders were dressed in colorful period costumes. Marching bands accompanied the procession throughout with well behaved horses calm and collected.
