Cushnie, QLD, Australia.

Note: No horses were harmed in this – It may look dramatic/scary but he was just testing his limits.

Creative, curious country chick, with a few horses, lazy dog and insane cat in tow! Living the dream in rural Australia, my photos focus on the outback, horses, and the rural way of life… oh and a few pretty flowers along the way!

    great Action photo Penny, they have to be taught sometime in their life, and if they have to come a working animal, I do like the B/W shot.

  • Thank you so much Rod :)

    Kangaroo pony?? Very cool shot! I have seen my longhorns do this but not the horses..

  • lol, who knows!! the odd leap was owning to the knee hobbles he was wearing (prevents horses from striking out when putting the saddle on for the first time) they are widely used out here, it helps the horses and the handlers stay safe, and unlike chain or ankle hobbles horses they don’t have a tripping effect :)
