Painted Horse: those pictures are wonderful!!! Being on the east coast, our terrain is very different...but I love to ride the east coast version of those types of trails! Sometimes non-trails, too, bushwacking can be fun! Wish I had some pictures to show the east coast version and compare....quite the difference! I'm pretty sure my horse is a mountain goat in disguise, she'd do well out there.
A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.
