The story behind the image
My mother was an avid rider since her early childhood. During Easter 1956, at the age of 13, she spent a week at Bredeneek Castle near Preetz, Germany, on a horse riding training camp.
This snapshot was apparently taken during a heavy rainshower. Three girls (my mother in the middle) lie in the hay of the riding stables and watch their horses while these eat hay, unimpressed by the rain.
I really like this image as it paints a picture of a world that has stood still for 66 years. Even today, many girls are dreaming of spending a week at a horse riding workshop. They would love to jump into the hay and watch their horses during a rainshower. So, in almost seven decades, very little has changed. I think this is very interesting.
