Cuba Horse Business Photo Essay

In this Jan. 31, 2015 photo, a horse trainer stands with a horse before showing it at an auction inside the National Equestrian Club in Lenin Park on the outskirts of Havana, Cuba. After Fidel Castro’s government banned horse racing along with gambling and professional sports in 1959, Cuba continued to participate in amateur equestrianism, producing top-notch horse riders and trainers. But the costly sport slipped into decline in the 1990s, when the fall of the Soviet Union provoked an economic crisis that made it hard to care for the animals. (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)
