„Hiking in the mountains”

 

Hiking in the mountains it's a great idea on your holidays and free time. This is good entertainment for tourist and people who like nature or adventure.

This hobby combines a physical activity with seeing a beautiful landscape.


 

To walk in the mountains you must have only: trekking boots, comfortable socks, thermoactive underwear and clothes on every weather.

Don't forget about the cap! At least a day before your trip you must plan your journey in the mountains.

Remember to take a map with trails, proper quantity of food and water. A torch could be useful, too.


 

To conquer mountain peak you should get up very early. When you climb you always see beautiful landscapes,

but these views aren't as amazing as on the mountain peak. From the top you see wonderful scenery:

valley, mountains, sometimes waterfalls and innumerable quantities of the mountain peaks.

It isn't possible to describe it. You must see it yourself.


 

Some of the mountains are as high that they look like swimming in the clouds.

Usually on the mountain peak stands a big cross, which indicate the goal of hiking.

Sometimes there is a book where tourists could write name, date and other informations,

for example where are they from.

 

Hiking could be a good way to spend time with the family.

Horses

Equestrianism (horseriding) is a very popular hobby. This broad description includes the use of horses for practical working purposes,

transportation, recreational activities, artistic or cultural exercises and competitive sport.

History of horse use

There is controversy over the exact date horses were domesticated. Indirect evidence suggests that

horses were ridden long before they were driven. There is some evidence that about 3000 BC near the Dnieper River,

people were using bits on horses s; a stallion that was buried there shows teeth were consistent with using a bit.

In ancient Times chariot warfare was followed by the use of war horses as light and heavy cavalry.

The horse played an important role throughout human history all over the world, both in war and in peaceful

pursuits such as transportation, trade and agriculture. Horses lived in North America,

but died out at the end of the Ice Age. Horses were brought to North America by European explorers,

beginning with the second voyage of Columbus in 1493.

Horse racing

Humans appeared to have long expressed a desire to know which horse

was the fastest and horse racing has ancient roots.

Gambling on horse races appears to go hand-in hand with racing.

Example types of horse racing:

- Steeple chasing

- Ride and tie

- Endurance riding
