Horseback shrimp fisherman of Oostduinkerke, Belgium.

Shrimp fishermen sit in wooden saddles on their horses, which drag large nets behind them. Draft horses famous for their enormous strength, such as the Brabant or Hainaut breed, are used for this task.

The catch is then transported through the streets of Oostduinkerke on carts.
