These photos were taken by Hawaii writer Laurie Hanan. We begin with a few rodeo shots, then move on to polo, which turns out to be big in Hawaii. As you would most likely guess, horses aren’t native to the islands. They were first brought there in 1803 when a mare and her foal were given to King Kamehameha as a gift. Horses, ranching, rodeos, and polo became an integral part of the Hawaiian lifestyle over the years. So, today we celebrate horsing around with Laurie Hanan, who got a couple of shots I can’t even believe. Especially, well, you’ll see when you get to the close up.
By the way, I’m always on the lookout for good Hawaii photos. If you have some you’d like to share, let me know and we’ll talk about featuring your shots on Friday Fotos!
