Not always, but usually enough to get you home.

The Redheads. It's always the redheads causing trouble, stirring up the stallions to fight.
She couldn't care less who wins, just standing around waiting for the D.

Sometimes the bigger kids will ambush you on the way home...

Recently I have been scanning old negatives from my grandparents collection. I figured this shot fit in here what with the horses.

The lady standing was my grandmother, my dad and his younger sister are on the horses. They are just outside the gates to The Forbidden City in Beijing. They used to ride their horses there once or twice a week. I think it was taken in about 1925 as my dad looks like he is 9 or so.

My grandmother was a pretty spiffy dresser what with the coat and tie and riding britches, boots and big hat. They lived a good life there, Grandpa worked for the Chinese Postal Service which was administered by the British. They had several servants, an armour or nanny for the kids when they were young, a gardener, cook and stable boy as well as a gate keeper to keep the riff raff out.

That's pretty cool and a great family treasure. It must have been an unusual childhood for your Dad and Aunt, quite an adventure. They probably wouldn't realize how much until they came home though.

Thanks for sharing that. It's interesting. What an amazing experience growing up there.
