trust me, I've tried. a trillion ways. The problem is it got over exposed because I was ignant still and learning my camera and a white horse on a sunny day doesn't give much to work with *bangs head* I'll get it one of these days..the right balance of brightVcontrast...or I'll just accept it the way it ish. cause I'm lazy lately
One of the billions reasons I adore horses is their gentle nature Of course horses are equal and some prefer to look down on everything else except themselves But this is such a cute shot!
I remember one stable I used to go to for "classes" many years: There was this big older mare, Atza, who was a former racing horse (used in both dressage and showjumping). In their first year, when the family was only bying horses before starting business, they found Atza Tatjana. At first, she was pretty strong to ride as one of their workers tried her (well she had huge muscles and was big), but then the owner thought to give it a try with her daughter, who was under 7yrs at that time as I recall. And smth really odd happened; the moment She put her little daughter on the saddle, the mare´s ears started to move back and forth, standing like a statue like being afraid to move one bit. the smiling little girl, with really loose hold to the mare´s mouth, couraged her to trot, and she trotted sooooo slowly and carefully, almost stopping in turns and kept on glancing to her back like being sure the little creature didn´t fall she didn´t even try to go faster and "escaping" from under her like she had tried with the previous rider
After that the owner told me and my mom, that everytime a little kid was put on Atza´s saddle, she moved like being carrying eggs or smth else easily breakable But with older riders, she did not hesitate to "test" them sometimes
thanks. yeah..shadow's one of those miracle ponies who tests his adult riders but is a total babysitter with kids....He'll flakeout at his own shadow with me, but I don't have tow orry about him and my kids
