magic in the dark

A few years ago I woke up in the middle of the night by the sound of clattering hoofs on the cobblestones of the Herengracht . When I looked out of my window I could just see the tail of a long cortege of carriages with lanterns, drawn by trotting horses in the dark. It seemed pure magic .

Today I was pleasantly surprised by hoofclattering again and was able to watch the whole cortege. In the meanwhile I found out that it concernes the yearly nightride through the centre of Amsterdam organized by the menvereniging hoofdstad aanspanning. At de website horses you can read more about it.
