Funny how I’ve been trying to arrange a horseback riding outing in Florida for years and it takes my little sister in New York to coordinate a ride while I’m visiting her there for my summer vacation!
Horseback riding offers many things. Quiet, quality alone time in the woods to be one with nature, fast gallops when you feel the need for speed, therapy for those that might need assistance due to medical conditions or just plain relaxation for the pure love of horses and the wilderness for people like me!
I was literally “back in the saddle” and was riding while I shot this image and many others. Felt so good to be out there riding horses again!! I had a hard time deciding which was more fun, taking photographs, scuba diving or riding again. Pretty special when you truly love more than one hobby. I consider myself lucky!
