PICTURE OF THE DAY 4

AHMEDABAD?...No, actually, you’re pretty good -- well, at least, the horse looks pretty good. An Indian rider from the Gujarat Police Mounted Squad gallops over a jump during the Equestrian Show 2008 at the Police Stadium in Ahmedabad.

FYI - Gujarat is an industrial state in western India that borders Pakistan. Ahmedabad is the 7th largest city in India with a mere 5.6 million folks calling it home. For a little perspective, that’s the population of Maryland…all of Maryland. Some 7.7 million folks live in Virginia…all of Virginia, while 9 million people live in North Carolina.

Of course, PETA opposes riding horses. The Europeans can eat 'em, but you're not supposed to ride one. Hmmmm...
