Sanctuary….

Xenia at Tranature has given us the Lens-Artists Challenge #108. Sanctuary If you are familiar with my blog you will not be surprised at where I find sanctuary.

When you’re lost in the nightmare of life, just hold my hand, and follow the sound of my heartbeat to find sanctuary in my heart.”

― Anthony T. Hincks

I also find sanctuary in the arena. Here the outside world is left at the door and I am completely focused on my horse and the task at hand…riding!

The trails are a peaceful place for my horse and me. I follow the sound of his heartbeat and we travel together. It is sanctuary for both of us.

Thank you for this challenge Xenia . It was a lovely one to respond to.

    Hi Anne,

    Beautiful photos ❤ Horses are amazing animals – my grandpa had horses and I spent most of my summer holidays' at my grandparents' house so seeing horses always brings back my childhood memories. I am planning to go horse riding sometime in the near future but as I am living in the center of a big city, it's pretty difficult to find a nice place (I want one like the trails in your photo! )

    Cheers

    Mark

      I hope you can find something. Maybe there is a riding place in one of the parks in your city.

    “I follow the sound of his heartbeat and we travel together”. Perhaps one of the most beautiful sentences I’ve read in a long time Anne. And I know you sincerely do. Loved the image with it as well. Thank you for crediting me with the challenge but it was actually guest-hosted this week by Xenia Tran, a remarkable author, photographer and animal-lover😊
