Thank you for these they are all beautiful and as I am currently doing a Uni project on horses this has helped with my research so thank you again 🙂

Fantastic set of images. Thanks for sharing. I’m not a horse enthusiast but still appreciate these beautiful images.

THANK YOU FOR THE WONDERFUL PICTURES. I HAVE HAD HORSES FOR 40 YEARS. I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT THEY ARE TO PHOTOGRAPH. I HAVE A CHESTNUT ARAB THAT IS THE JOY OF MY LIFE MY SISTER HAS AND ANDULISIAN. THEY ARE BOTH SPOILED ROTTEN THANK YOU MARIA

Such an under-appreciated creature. They carried us around on their backs for thousands of years. It’s unfortunate that now that we have our cars to take us around, we only really ever think of them when we are putting a bet down. These photos capture them beautifully though.

..except for maybe that 3rd one which is way to heavily photoshopped to fake the DOF.

Horses really are such amazing creatures. Very intelligent, too, and each one has his own personality.

I make wooden toys for children and just found your pictures as I am doing a caricature of horses for a farm scene. I then transfer the image to laquered wood. The most beautiful images I have seen yet, Thank you.

I love shooting equines. They have so many characters and moods it makes for an exhilarating experience and some fabulous images!
