Horse Show at Chubb Park in Chester Township, New Jersey. Chester is not far from where the US Equestrian team trains. By Paul Goldfinger. © Click image for full view.  Reposted from 2012 on Blogfinger.

This photograph shows the gentle and elegant sport of horses and all the rituals, postures, clothing and casual styles of these aficionados blended with the formality of it all. When we lived in Chester, we often saw “horse people” (usually women) shopping or walking around town in their special clothes. I like the black coats and hats on these riders.

That’s why I chose Gato Barbieri’s “Girl in Black”  (Para mi Negra) — a tango by the jazz saxophonist  (b. 1934 in Argentina) who wrote the incredible score for film “The Last Tango in Paris” with Marlon Brando.

This song seems to fit for this photo. Argentina is horse country,  and the tango is very  sexy.

Do you see any of that in the photo?  How do those riders get out of those pants anyhow?

This image appeared in a 1988  Pfizer Labs calendar  (contest winner) which was distributed world-wide. I was Miss August.   It was taken in Tlaquepaque, Mexico—near Guadalajara.   ©

This town is in the State of Jalisco where mariachi music was invented in the 18th century.  I love mariachi music–it has vocal harmonies, accordions, harmonicas, trumpets, guitars and strings—it is happy music.  And you can dance to it, but you need a big sombrero.

This prehistoric monument is from about 3000 bc, (before cooking) and is in Wiltshire, England. Back then they would put up crepe paper and hold proms there, long before slow dancing was invented. Paul Goldfinger photo ©

This prehistoric monument is from about 3,000 BC, (before cooking) and is in Wiltshire, England. Back then they would hold proms there, long before slow dancing was invented.  Archeologists can carbon date some doo wop songs back to that time.   Paul Goldfinger photo ©  (Taken before they built the fence to keep out NJ tourists.)
