Occasionally, I’ll accompany Lindsay to her barn for impromptu horse-riding lessons. It’s tons of fun, and the closest thing to a workout that I’ll ever get. It’s actually an incredibly physical sport, with a lot of attention to posture, position of hands and feet, and so much more; in fact, it reminds me a lot of ballet! Originally, our lessons were just for fun (and a way to hang out), but they turned out to be quite useful when my friend Jessica Power asked me to do a horse-themed photoshoot!
We tried to get Danny (Lindsay’s horse) to let me ride him bareback, but he had thrown out his back (we didn’t know it at the time, but he was acting belligerent so I dismounted), so we mostly just walked him around the pasture. Thanks so much, Danny, for being a good sport!
More pictures forthcoming! I decided to spread these out over a few posts since there are a ton of images (and she’s sending me more). Until then, please check out Jessica Power Photography on Facebook, and visit her Tumblr for more lovely photographs!
