Enjoying a short holiday

Gunners and horses of the Kings Troop Royal Artillery cool off in the surf after a gallop along the beach at a seaside resort in Blackpool, England on Sept. 16. The horses and gunners are taking a break from their usual ceremonial duties in central London to enjoy a short holiday break. They are guests of the World Horse Welfare’s stables at Penny Farm.
