Day 1

Had to start early towards anthiur which is aroun 120 kms away from my place coimbatore... Since it was a lazy Saturday morning, started by 12 in the afternoon... Had a filter coffee break at a KDFC joint enroute to the horse trade... And headed towards the place via Perumanallur , Gobi route... Most of the cars and bikes were headed to the horse fair... It was not such a difficulty in finding the place...We had to park our cars in the parking lot which was about 1kms before the actual trade fair place... Parked our car safe and started to walk towards the trade fair place... Place was filled with 1000s of people...Then came the much awaited place, had the luck to see the best of the horses from all around India in a single place... Horses from Native indigenous breads to imported breads, every horses where present for the show and sale...The most famous of the lot is the native Indian bread called marvari, which is quite famous in Rajasthan, Punjab states, where the kings used these breads for their transport...Apart from them, there where the English Through bred Breads, which are imported from UK... These horses are used for the track events... Had some of the best sightseeing of these wonderful horses untill around 6 in the evening...Started towards coimbatore and reached around 9 Pm...Had a very good knowledge about the horses at the end of fair, which was quite amusing... A small village from Tamil Nadu hosting a horse trade fair at the grand scale is such a feat... Kudos to Anthiur and those lovely people...

Just the part of the actual crowd...
