Lovely capture! great light!

She must have lots of nerve, that girl… or no fear. Sitting on top of half a ton of agitated horse ain’t my idea of a picnic. Great shot, Mieke.
Yep – they’re very talented horsewomen and men at Home Valley. Amazing to watch!
Thanks, Bruce! Glad you like it!
Horse is prolly saying “Hey, this is not my best side, no shooting, no shooting!” ;) Beaut catch, Mieke!
I think you’re probably right ;) Lol! Either that or he’s saying “This is totally dumb. Why am I chasing them round in circles? Let’s put them in the yard, already!!!”
Thank you, Lucinda!
Great shot and timing Mieke….but the horse was probably used to being photographed with a Canon and was worried about his image
Ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Clearly, he shouldn’t have been worried. In fact, if I remember correctly, there was a Canon shooter off to the right – I think Rum was probably just trying to give the Nikon the better angle ;)
Cough, cough ,arghhh……. I think some dust just got up nose…… Great picture, nicely done
Ha ha ha!! It also got in my camera and buggered up the shutter mechanism. But it’s all good now :)
masterly! — both rider and photographer!!
Ha ha! Thank you, Harry!! It’s lovely to “see” you again!
This brings back memories for me Mieke, I used to be a Jillaroo, had a standard bred horse and she was terrific with the cows, I used to round up a hundred head by myself and loved it. Wonderful lighting and I like the sepia :o)x
:) Thanks, Josie. That must’ve had its moments… and plenty of good times too. I learned “Clancy of the Overflow” by heart when I was at Uni and I just love the way Banjo Patterson describes the drover’s life… It’s easy to romanticise, but I’m sure there are truly special moments in amongst the hard yakka!!
Wonderful capture Mieke. The picture really tells a tale
:) Thank you!!! xo
