Beauty in Motion … and Sometimes Standing Still

This week’s photos are brought to you by the letter “H” for “horse”.
(Weekly Photo – Week #08, February 19, 2014)

I have a confession to make – I have been terrified of horses since I was in my early teens.

At that time, I was involved in quite a bad accident while riding a horse. Now the accident probably had more to do with the fact that I had no experience or training in horseback riding, but nonetheless, the accident left a mental scar – as much as I thought horses were magnificent animals, I would not go near them. In August 2012, I came across a photo of me riding a horse when I was in my late teens. I had totally forgotten about this (no, it wasn’t a mental block, just a lousy memory) and it made me wonder if there was yet hope for me to get back on a horse.

So in late 2013 I did! And I am glad I did because now I am falling in love with these wonderful animals. Here are some photos, past and present, of horses in my photo collection.

Also, some inanimate horses …

And this cutie is not a horse but he is so cute I couldn’t resist adding him to this blog …

And last, but certainly not least, meet Fanny. She is the horse I have been learning to ride at TROtt, and she is an absolute sweetie, with a bit of a mischievous streak in her friendly personality.
