The Best Seat You Will Ever Have.

When you are on a great horse, you have the best seat you will ever have. Sir Winston Churchill

This week’s Word Press Photo Challenge is the word “Atop”.  Perfect. I have just received, from professional photographer Susan J. Stickle ,four photos of me atop my horse Biasini at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival last weekend. Here they are. All these photos were taken while I was riding the Prix St.George test.

    I love these pictures. You and Baisini are so beautiful together. I can tell you are a Team and enjoy each other very much. I used to ride English when I was younger, but trail riding is my passion. Thank you so much for sharing and keep doing what you enjoy 🙂

      Thank you. I’m glad you enjoyed the photos. Trail riding is a wonderful thing to do. At home in Ontario Biasini and I like to go out on forest trails.

    What a beautiful and graceful horse! One summer we stayed at a cabin by a lake. My friend stayed with us and she and I were at the riding stables so much that they let us ride for free if we helped with the horses, cooling them down, brushing, lots of things (except we didn’t have to clean out the stalls LOL!) It was one of the best summers of my life!

      Apparently Winston Churchill was an avid rider and polo player in his day. This is something I only learned recently.
