What I love about see this video short is that it illuminates a thriving subculture within the black community. As a northerner, I had no idea about this. What’s great is to see how an old tradition evolves and is kept alive and meaningful.
I saw this and couldn’t help thinking about how my wife’s Uncle John, a longtime horse trainer, will really dig the horseriding aspect of all this.
