Just love the light that you were able to capture in his eye. Again, beautiful shot.

I created a Twitter Account but forgot the password. I had to reset it but haven't got around to Tweeting anything. Too busy looking for dead relatives I guess.

Linda said...

The word that came to mind when I saw this shot was 'velvety'. That velvet-soft nose, the soft cheek and neck, the supple leather of the bridle and reins, all lit up by that warm sunlight. Beautiful.

So do you play polo yourself or spectate? Here it's a very 'upper class' sport!

Sounds like a great evening!
I love this picture. Amazing all the gear they put on those horses though.
Hope you share more pictures.

Claudia....dead relatives are very interesting BUT...you need to start tweeting!

Amy...The first thing that came to mind when I opened up these shots...was HARDWARE. I love this pony though....love love love!

Tami said...

Linda...I do not play. I would like to give it a go someday. I was thinking maybe next year it would be fun to take a vacation at a polo camp. Polo in this country is from middle class to bazilionaire! Darlington I would say it non-rated (I think that is the correct terminology???).

I know a family that used to play and they are local farmers.... Horses were the only off farm activity for them.
