“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

This afternoon Darrin came over to work with Winnie, and after scraping off as much dried mud as possible....I rode Abbe. It was her 3rd time with the bitless bridle and I was really loving it.

After a little spook (I managed to stay on), it was smooth sailing from there on out.

I was able to ride her with about a 1 on the reins most of the time.

The last time she was ridden, she kept wanting to trot.

Today she was comfortable enough to walk.

Got to admit it....this is beating the heck out of what I was going through driving (attempting).
It seems that my horse and I are enjoying this!

If you click on the pictures, you will be able to see how Photoshop gave them that watercolor look.


  1. Glad you and the horse are having fun together now!

  2. Nice touch using the painting filter. Very pretty.

    I hope I'll be able to use my Dr. Cook's BB when I get back up to ride again. Baby Doll really liked it.
    I'm glad you are enjoying your BB, too.
