Hawking

Several months ago I did a post with these 2 beautiful paintings included. Each represents a lady participating in the sport of hawking as she rode aside.





















I happened across this stunning photo of a young lady giving an exhibition of hawking at a show.

Hi, Julie -- I like your blog, too! Lots of cool stuff here....

I'm particularly fascinated by the re-enactor (I'm guessing) with the hawk. Do you recall where on the 'net you found it? I'd love to share the picture, but I'd like also to share more info, plus give credit to the rider, and the photographer, if possible. Thanks! :)

That is so cool. I love the last shot with the Friesian.

This is SO what I want to do...course the one hawker I talked to, said it is not very practical from horseback (back in the "old" days, servants/slaves would help chase down the hawk/prey it caught AND there were not many fences, etc to run into with horses like today) for our day and age...sighhh..still looks fun :)

I remember those pictures. So cool to find someone re-enacting!
