of the horse, and
Love the eye of the rider peering over the horse's head. The gloved hand caressing the horse's muzzle, and her other hand enclosed over the chin of the little girl.
I bet you thought I was going to be a BIT more inventive, didn't you?
(their's a clue UP there!)
What a stunning, beautiful guy! Taken at the PSJ show here at the Highfields in Aiken, SC.
His head was tucked under at all times. So, do you see the bit? Pretty interesting set up. I have never seen
this before, but apparently, the leather goes through the bit to keep it in a place that keeps the horse's head
When I see that there is a show, I get a bit apprehensive. I know, that the atmosphere is tough. It is electrifying actually. The riders are competitive. The energy in the air is negative. For me. I love, love, love, though watching them. The competitor's. They are amazing. Something that I wish I could do, but I also know, I will never do this. Certain breeds of horses are made for this. Certain human's are made for this.
I guess, I will just photograph them.
the intensity of being first in line for an intensified ride through obstacles that are to be put to memory before the rider is tested on the course. Remember, the rider is trying to visualize the course, navigate their horse, and then, ride their horse to where she/he has total control.
Bravo, to the rider's and their horses!

scroll below the photo for my thoughts. I hope you enjoy this! :) So, what do you see? Don't forget to look below the photo for my critique!
In the horse world, we talk about socks. The horse may have one sock, or two, or three. Sometimes, FOUR. The horse on your right has four WHITE socks! Now, a funny thing (maybe, just to me) that the human on the left, has ONE body, and four, (FOUR!) black socks.
What did you see? :) :)
