It doesn't have to be cute - just one that means something to you

I'd have to say this picture from the beginning of the year, it was at this moment that I knew I'd found the one. Ever since then Apollo has been my trail buddy as, unlike Rosie, he enjoys long trail rides and never rushes to get back home .

I think this is my favorite photograph this year so far because Brisco and I have been practicing bareback and liberty for a while now and he has been excellent. He works better bareback than he does in the saddle and jsut recently we went without a bit in and bareback and he performed the best I have ever seen.
I do think that if you want to have more of a bond with your horse, you must understand hum, gain trust, and one thing that will elp is to ride bareback and without any bit in - because once I rode without a bit in and rode bareback it was amazing. We loping three full circles around, which is something I've always wanted to try doing but we could never do it before now.
Riding Bareback is an amazing feeling and works wonders. Every time I feel down or just need to lighten up, just even sitting on my horse bareback is enough to lift me to the highest spirits.

One thing I learned when you lope bareback, don't let your heels help grab on and stay on your horse by putting them to his side. That is how I leanred Brisco is actually not that lazy and can buck! But I stayed on both times bareback, so that is always a plus!
the first time I thought it was just him getting his energy out, but the second time I found out what caused it, then i tested it and sure enough I was right.
My other horse, Golley, I wouldn't wanna ride abreback when he bucks. I was warming him up for a friend and I am glad I did because we were tkaing a joyful lope ride back home and he felt like "a real horse" and man he does have a good buck! Don't worry, I stayed on!

But anyways - I love this photo. It has so many stories to tell, as you can see ;)

This is the day I bought him. He fell in my heart from the advert already. The fact that I was later told, he has lost 1 eye did not budge the lump that had set in there. This is a few hours after I brought him home.. he looked right through me and I knew, no matter what, we will have a great life together.

This is mine. It's of my beautiful boy at equifest Ireland winning his class after having months off because of laminitis. we got him around 3 years ago as a skinny old looking boy with a very dippy back and high whithers. We worked him fed him and he came champion show pony the first time we took him out. He is such a special beautiful and down right insane pony but I wouldn't be whole with out him. I love this picture because he never ever smiles for the camera. As soon as he sees it ears go back but he didn't see it and I feel it really captures his joy and his presence. He has more or less gone out of showing now because he is begining to look old compared to the younger ponies but at 21 years young he has started dressage and are aims are high(ish) (at prelim level).

Great thread idea! Here's my favorite this year. Got a new camera recently, love it. Picture is my kiddo & Merit, my 2 yo gelding. He's "that guy" that everyone adores. Just a super sweet, very willing to please youngster. DD absolutely loves him, makes me glad because down the road a few years after I've logged some serious time on him, he'll be her step up horse to show.

Mutual understanding or conspiring against mom? Yet to be determined.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
