What an interesting if very unusual custom. I come from a Norfolk village on the North Sea coast myself, but the fishermen there confine themselves to boats! The horses used in Belgium seem to be a special breed. I wonder how they like the icy cold water? Although I think Queen Mathilde looks as stylish as one can be standing knee deep in sea water but perhaps another style of waterproof jacket might have been more practical.
