Equine love

For those that follow my AKG Inspiration page on facebook you probably saw the equine photos a while back.  I had the pleasure of attending a horse show with a friend to ride, and she gets to do something I have always wanted to do more of… JUMP!  She also does cross country which just blows my mind because most of those jumps are way bigger than I even am.

Here are some shots from the day.

Dressage started everyone off.

Then off to some practice jumping and ground work.

Then the real jumps.  I could really get into horse show photography, wish I had more friends that rode.

Then it was off to cross country. I didn’t know where to be watching from so didn’t get many good photos.

Being a horse show, Luna was allowed to tag along. Lots of dogs there and bikes and cars driving around. I was surprised how bomb proof the horses were around the bikes as that normally scares many horses. But I guess it’s much like dog shows, they start it when they are young and over time they just get used to it all and it’s no big deal.

I had hoped to go to another show this weekend, but it doesn’t look like my friend will be riding.  I will have to find something else to do outdoors to enjoy the weather.
