HORSEBACK SHRIMP FISHING (begium) _ 0639

IMG_5689

Shrimp fishermen on horseback wearing bright yellow slickers, tall rubber boots and sou’westers are seated in their wooden saddles on the back of their horses that drag the large nets behind them. The horses are in the water up to the top of their legs. Draft horses famous for their enormous strength, such as the Brabant draft horse, are used for this task. Every now and then, the fishermen and their horses will return to the shore to empty their nets and deposit their catch in the baskets hung from each side of the horses. Shrimps caught by fishermen on horseback are exceptionally fresh and are a true delicacy when cooked
