The stables project | A converted horse stable

When I was a kid I used to ride horses every week.... I still remember going to the stables and how I loved to be there and feed and comb the horses. I was pretty small by then and my parents thought it would be great to just ride in the woods instead of going to a posh manege. And I really loved being able to sit on a tall horse right away, while my friends were riding on ponys! 

There was a little cord on the headset of 'my' horse, held by my teacher and I was taught to just look at him and do the same. It was all so natural and simple... I had my rainboots on and felt so free...

I had to think of this when I came across  a project called 'The Stables' located in Winchester, England. It is a private home made out of what was formerly a stable for racing horses. Ain't it lovely with the white walls and the old parts. How do you like it?

Ziet er geweldig uit. Straalt rust uit en wat leuk dat er een aantal details van de stal in de woning zijn opgenomen.
