horses

There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.

If I am completely honest I would have to say  that I have always been slightly nervous of horses. I feel that riding such a beautiful, intelligent animal should be an amazing experience but the reality for me, mostly because of their size and the fact that they can have their own mind about what they want to do, has got in the way of me developing any real bond with a horse.  Growing up in Dublin probably didn't help either!  

So when I was asked to do a photo shoot with a family and their horses, I will admit to being slightly apprehensive .  The experience though has left me inspired, by the beauty of the horses, the bond that can exist between an owner and their horse and the pure joy that can come from riding.  I hope I get asked again now :)
