Exmoor pony on the Moors

The photo challenge from April 1st was Landscape in my mind I was immediately searching for a landscape picture with horses… I remembered the vacation in the UK in Exmoor where we saw Exmoor ponies in the wild.

Their coat is a really good camouflaged in the ferns that are growing on the Moors. In the background you can see the farmers land. It is incredible beautiful. If you are ever in the South of England, do visit Exmoor National Park.

Exmoor ponies have a special place in my heart because Kyra’s mom is an Exmoor. They have very gentle characters.

Did you ever had the chance to see horses in their natural habitat?

Enjoy life

Horse riding birds, I call them with a smile. I love the way they seem so confident on a horse back. They never have to be worried to fall, that’s for sure.

I made this picture for the photo challenge ‘On top’.

Sometimes I see them pluck the loose hairs for their nests.

This one seemed so proud to be up there! He was singing out loud.

I just love to take the time to see what is going on in the field.

Have a nice day! Don’t forget to enjoy life.

Weekly Photo Challenge: silhouette

When I came across the WP Weekly Photo Challenge with the theme Silhouette I browsed through all my horse pictures and found this beauty.

Reflecting on 2015 and earlier years I realize that Kyra and I have been on a wonderful journey since 2009. I am enjoying every day of it.

This is a picture taken in July 2009. Kyra trots in front, the Arabian horse on the left is Ziggy. Behind Ziggy and Kyra you can spot the lovely fluffy ears and mane of Mees.

In the background, behind a ditch, you can spot the herd of yearlings watching our ponies run.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inspiration

For the weekly Photo Challenge I chose this picture.

This is what me inspires every day: Connecting with a horse. From heart to heart.

Horse Quote

This picture of me and a wild Dartmoor foal was taken in a moorland called Dartmoor in Devon, England. This moment was very special, because he was deciding if he could trust me. He showed his trust by reaching out to me to touch my hand with his velvet nose.
