In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Happy Place.”
As long as I am with my horse, I am in my Happy Place. It doesn’t have to be riding, also sitting and watching my horse in her herd makes me happy, doing chores at the barn make me happy, training my horse makes me happy. Just being with my horse…
It takes my mind off of everything. I am in total Zen Mode: in the moment. That is why horses are good for the soul. My soul. Thank you Kyra for being here.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Beneath Your Feet.”
The assignment was to look down and capture the ground beneath your feet.
I never made a picture from this point of view riding my horse. Thank you for watching.
It was quite challenging because I made the picture with my phone. It was hard to sit still, focus and operate my new, big slippery phone with one hand without letting it fall into that ditch you don’t see in the picture.
The feeling that represents this picture is ‘proud’:
-I am proud that I managed to make this picture the way I pictured it, despite the difficulty making a picture with my phone in one hand.
-I am proud to accomplished training my horse the way she is. She is very cooperative and sensitive and she knows so much already. She is only seven years old.
-I am proud that I changed my training methods over the years from traditional to Natural Horsemanship to positive reinforcement to train my horse. You can see Kyra enjoying her reward in this picture.
-I am proud that I accomplished my search for the Holy Grail: a saddle with a perfect fit for horse and human, high quality and beauty. I am enjoying my saddle and my Spanish stirrups every day I look at it or use it.

Mees & Kyra
Horses love to be connected: to their herd, their friends, to nature, to other animals and to people. They are very good at it, too.
For the Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Today Was a Good Day” I chose this picture of Kyra. It is taken today, and is was a good day.
We had a lovely morning ride today. The weather was sunny, there was a nice breeze and Kyra did her best, as always. After the ride and her shower she rolled down. For me a moment to enjoy, too.
