Horse Man Connection

Ariel Fintzi and his horse Whiskey in Clinton Park Stable, New York, February 2019. Growing up in kibbutz Netzer Sereni in the center of Israel, the strong connection of Ariel and horses started as soon as he could walk, 63 years ago. He spent most of his childhood outside, working at the cowshed and in the fields— but his daily highlight was to work in the small kibbutz’s stable. Carriage horses are one of New-York's most famous sites and ride in Central Park for over 150 years. Today, only less than two hundreds are the living testimony for this history, of a bygone culture.
