Thanks everyone! I love hearing your opinions! Weird, no one has mentioned the third one, which was my favorite. But then, I love the whole spanish stallion flare and movies such as Mask of Zorro,which that picture gives me that feeling.

digcamfan, yes it is quite amazing. I love all weather for horseback riding, but not the extremes. In cold weather, your feet threaten to fall off and your horse has trouble just walking, and in hot weather, you are drenched with sweat because you are forced to wear concealing jeans, while yourmouth suffers from dehydration.

But still, even with weather extremities, Id take horseback other than walking or biking any day.

Jumping off a tall horse int he winter after a long ride (Drill Team for example) Means death. I ease myself off because my joints are too frozen to function. Ouch.

I love all of them.. but I looove the one of gammon. He looks like a wild stallion. If only somehow you could get hte fence out it would look like he was in teh wild. You seriously should send that to Emily, she would love it. I can give you her eail address if you want.

It looks a bit sad to me - Guantanamo Horse. But you're right: if you know the background's comfortable for a happy horse it's a lovely picture.

I'm with digicamfan on this one.

Beautiful shot !

I can almost feel the cold and hear the clogs sinking in the snow.

While I can see for sure the shadow of the puff under his nose.

What a pity for those branches on the left !

They disturb what could have otherwise been a wonderful clean composition.

Here's my attempt at digitally remove them ( as well as some small level correction ):

Hey thanks brtsergio! It took me awhile to see what you did, but I finally got it, and I like what youve done with the picture! I thought you meant to cut out the whole tree, but I thought the tree added edge and balance. But I get it now, Thanks!

Beautifully done.The whole shot gives me the samefeelings as my 'homeward bound' one. I'm sure a horse is a lot better and cosier than a bicycle, if you can afford the running costs!
