fall for horses

If you're in Ontario and want to ride or take lessons where the horses are well loved, try Wildwood. [wildwoodranch.com]

We had the perfect day for this - dramatic clouds and plenty of sunshine, fresh wind blowing - and the woods and fields there are lovely. The hot bath at the end of the day sure felt fine!

Kelsey's grandma founded this place 40 years ago. Kelsey is riding her blue-eyed horse, Harmony. They are barrel racers, so Harmony doesn't appreciate this slower pace. She wants to GO!

In the distance on the left is Bell, the happiest border collie in the world.

I wanted to go with black and white for this series, but you're missing the charm of Dawn's scarlet cowboy boots.

My horse's ear is in the shot. Decided not to crop it out, since it reminds me of the challenges of shooting on horseback. I'm quite proud of this shot. As he rode out of the forest into the clearing, I knew it was the light I was waiting for. Thanks for stopping!

Did somebody say ‘carrots’?

great day. Too bad it has to end. .

I love horses. I am never more at peace than I am when I am riding. Thanks for sharing your outing! :-)
