Smoke from grenades shrouds horses and riders during a practice session for members of the Dutch cavalry in Scheveningen, Netherlands, Monday, Sept. 15, 2014. About 80 horses and riders were rehearsing on a beach in the coastal resort of Scheveningen, outside The Hague, for ceremonies which will be held Tuesday to mark the opening of parliament. The horses were exposed to smoke grenades and harsh sounds to reduce their chances of being startled by any incidents during the ceremony. (AP Photo/Peter Dejong)
