In what country do people practice shrimp fishing on horseback?

Answer:

Belgium

In Oostduinkerke, Belgium fishermen take huge draft horses chest-deep into the surf, pulling nets as well as chains that create vibrations on the sand. The vibrations cause the shrimp to jump right into the nets, and the seafood is then stored in baskets on the horse’s side. The horses don’t naturally enjoy the water and must be trained over about a year to work with the fishermen.
