    Tony, there is a wonderful connection between rider and horse. From the expression in their eyes It’s obvious both of them seem unsure about each other. The pony looking back towards but unable to see the rider, hesitant. The rider gazing downwards looks as if she is taking a big breath to steady herself. How could anyone not like it. JP

  • Thanks John, You read it right. This was a new pony for her and much bigger than than her previous one. He had not been ridden( is that a word?) in quite a while and they were both tentative and feeling each other out.

    Just wonderful. I’d be chuffed to bits to have taken such a picture.

  • Thanks sal, translate “chuffed to bits” for me same as “pleased as punch” lol

    Eyes, from corner to corner, tell a story. Excellent capture, Tony. This shot ought be marketable.

  • Thank You, not sure by what you mean by marketable but certainly appreciate your kind comment! Tony

    Hey, Tony … “marketable” is a compliment. Would think this shot might sell.

  • I knew it was a compliment and I appreciate it for sure. LOL I guess I was responding to the fact that it has gotten few comments and not many views but I am glad you like it honestly!! :)
