I think the horses from yesterdays photo belonged to a nearby farm.
We have riding schools in and outside Stavanger.
Many (mostly teenage) girls spend hours in the stables, and some have their own horse.
I was thinking that it is very rare to see horses out in the streets, like I have seen so many times in the UK..... and then suddenly I met this young girl with the horse, in a residential area a 10 minute drive from the city centre....

Very nice picture, this is a lucky girl. I don't know much about horses, but I think this is quite common even here, obviously for the better offs.

Our police use horses for transportation and patrol in our downtown streets. Of course they also travel by car too, but often they can go through crowded areas much more easily on horseback.

Oh cute. Here there are street signs for horse owners: "Pick up after your animal". I guess the rider is supposed to carry a shovel!
