(CNN) — There is perhaps nothing more picturesque in the winter than horses prancing through freshly fallen snow. And this video from China does not disappoint. 

Tens of thousands of equines galloped through a snowy pasture this week giving tourists exactly what they came to see. 

Much of China is already thawing out for spring blooms, but not in the northwest region where winter is very much still in season. 

The area has been affectionately dubbed the “home to horses from heaven” and that seems to be a pretty appropriate description. 

Definitely makes standing out in the cold a lot more bearable.
