As everyone knows horse riding is one of the most common activities that are being carried out in Portugal. There really are many more important things to worry about and better ways to go about bringing attention to things that they feel are worth bringing awareness to. I’ve found a lot of inspiration lately in the many of these music artists I’ve interviewed. One of the ones coming up soon was paralyzed by a tragic accident and he’s walking today. Singing too, of course. Stories of inspiration from people like that and other people in my life that I’m blessed to know have helped to motivate me into pursuing things I’d put off for far too long. In the Losheim Gap, a seven mile-mile pass on the northern edge of the Schnee Eifel, elite German SS tank units easily swept past scattered units of the 14th Cavalry Group. There were signs of panic and confusion everywhere among the retreating Americans, vehicles and artillery pieces rushed to get out of the way of the advancing Germans, or where just left abandoned to the German troops. The 99th Infantry Division another inexperienced outfit was receiving a bloody baptism of fire. The men of the 99th Division had known for some time that December 16th would be an exciting day, a group of entertainers for the USO, led by actress Marlene Dietrich, were scheduled to perform at the division headquarters the morning of the attack. As soon as the entertainers arrived they were quickly rushed out of the combat zone. Near the division headquarters, infantrymen of the 99th repelled waves of German infantry, but were finally overrun by tanks, which crushed some of the Americans in their foxholes. Nearly four hours after the German artillery had fired its first shell, General Omar Bradley, commander of the Twelfth Army Group, left his headquarters in the capital of Luxembourg bound for a meeting with the Allied Supreme Commander, General Dwight Eisenhower, unaware that the Germans were approaching less than twenty miles away from his location. This fact has lead many to believe that any cross between a cold blooded breed and a hot blooded breed will result in a Warmblood. I personally don’t believe this to be the case. There is a type called the Draft-Cross that fits this description more accurately. If you’ve been around many of these crosses you will know how widely they vary. Some remain far too heavy to be a sport horse while others appear to have no draft in them at all. Fortnite is the battle-royale game to beat. In fact, Epic Games confirmed in early 2020 that Fortnite hosted an incredible 12.3 million concurrent players in one record-breaking session, thanks to an in-game Travis Scott concert. Fortnite’s popularity is off the charts.

The race is broken into heats where two to three horses race one another; mares against mares, geldings against geldings and stallions against stallions. There are a few thrills and spills as horses spook and saddles break and two girls go tumbling. How hard or soft to hit? Where does the power come from? Good questions. This is my fathers take on it. Having comfortably taken my stance, aligned my cue and my aim, I am now ready to start cueing. With my cue tip approximately 13mm (½”) from the cue ball at address, my length of backward stroke will be governed entirely by the power I intend putting into the shot. Because my power does not come from the strength of the grip of my cue, but in fact, from the drive of my cue arm, it stands to reason that if I intend to play a soft stroke, the travel of my cue back from the cue ball will be short. Because of the intended soft stroke, the gap from my bridge hand to cue ball would be shorter than normal. Having shortened up in front with my bridge hand, it follows that I will shorten up my gripping point on the butt of my cue with my cueing hand, by moving my grip forward. I play from on, or close to cushions the same way”. Much of the series humor involves puns and other wordplay. Some of the wordplay and humor might not make it to prime-time television today. In the episode Diplomat’s Daughter” the villain is The Claw, an Asian KAOS agent.i In the confrontation with Agent 86 The Claw identifies himself at The Craw”. When 86 says, The Craw” The Claw corrects him No, not The Craw, The Craw!”ii In The Last One in Is a Rotten Spy” Smart has to retrieve something from a member of the Russian women’s swim team. He can’t remember the name and the names are all long and sound similar. In the epilogue Smart feels he would have no confusion with the names of the American women’s swim team. The members are; Bobby Jean Harper, Betty June Parker, Bonnie Joan Booker, and Bunny Jane Baker. For instance, Portugal has a staple place in the Working Equitation European Cup because of the number of equestrian centers they have in the country and their passion for the sport. More and more people getting into the sport every year, and different accessories such as saddle kits are continually being developed and improved. Some of the best equestrians are also in Portugal. This mainly has to do with the country’s history. Horse driving has always been a big part of Portugal’s history that’s why it’s not surprising for it to escalade to one of their major sports.

So, just putting it out there now, I love all breeds of horses. They are all beautiful, majestic creatures that deserve love and care. However, these breeds are very unique in their beauty, ranging from coat color to elegant gaits. Two of these breeds are also the oldest existing breeds in the world. Not only do you get to see a picture of them, but you also learn some history behind the breed as well. Its a win-win situation I think. BELGIAN HEAVY DRAFT HORSE – This breed is one of the most popular choices for working horses. All eyes were on Alydar and Affirmed as the 1978 Kentucky Derby loomed into view. The bigger of the two horses was the 6-5 favorite, but Affirmed got off to a strong start that propelled him to victory. Though he continued to be perceived as a bit of an underdog even in light of this success, with Eastern sportswriters calling his impressive performances a fluke, or perhaps the luck of a good start, he notched another victory – albeit a much closer one, in which Affirmed placed himself within firing range of Alydar’s famous (but, luckily, absent) finishing kick – at Preakness. I know unwanted horses are a major problem now. People are always trying to give me a free horse. I agree with some other posters that a quick death is preferable to the slow death of starvation. I think you and I are basically on the same page – at least we’re both concerned about the welfare of horses. Rundstedt’s only option now was to make the Allies pay in blood for every mile as their armies advanced into the heart of the Fatherland. He based his defensive plans on the thesis that the American and British armies were not going to maintain an even pressure along the whole front due to the length of their supply line. As the Western Allies experienced supply problems, both General George Patton and Bernard Montgomery fought over what fuel was available to mount their own spearhead into Germany. Due to Allied Supreme Commander Dwight Eisenhower’s lack of decisive leadership, both Patton and Montgomery were forced to limit their offensive operations. Instead of giving one of his best generals the men and supplies they needed to mount a single massive spearhead, Eisenhower had become too pre-occupied with politics unable to make the correct decisions on the battlefield. His lack of judgement would give the German Army time to reinforce their positions along the West Wall in fall and winter 1944. Eisenhower’s lack of judgement would cost the Allies the blood of over one hundred thousand soldiers.
