Dancer’s Photo Shoot…

Posted by mandyhuckins on August 11, 2009

GorgeousA very kind lady at the stables, who also happens to be a very talented photographer, offered to give us 30 minute photo sessions with our horses on Saturday.   I jumped at the chance.  This is a very photographed horse already, but I can’t seem to get enough.  As my husband said, “oh good, now we will finally have a picture of Dancer to frame and hang on the wall.”  This was said with a good measure of sarcasm.  But, it was fun to have a semi-professional photo shoot and I think the results speak for themselves.

Dancer Hugging Me



Here is the funniest one of the bunch…she had been so well-behaved, standing pretty quietly for all the posing, when we finally turned her loose, she let out a HUGE buck!  The camera caught her on the way down, but look at how much air she still has underneath her – all four feet are off the ground.

    I love it, I love it, I love it!!! What wonderful photos! I really like the one where she has her head wrapped around you like a hug…that’s one for the wall! The one of her bucking…priceless! Sweet Dancer rippin’ out a big buck; awesome!

    Gorgeous! I’m so glad you did this. The photographer is quite talented, indeed, but she also had good subjects. I couldn’t pick a favorite. Each new one I saw, I thought, “that one is the best!” Can’t wait to see you this Saturday.

    Love that photo…found this quote and think it applies: “La Gueriniere has pointed out, we will not want to ride everything the horse can do!”
