Thursday Challenge: Sports

This is my friend Lisa putting her beautiful
show horse Hoochie through the paces. The way 
understand it, these horses respond to
quiet voice commands to change speed or
gait—and Hoochie is clearly paying very close 
attention to whatever Lisa is saying here.
Wish I had a video, because the two of them look 
gorgeous together (and they even have matching manes)!

[See more "Sports" here.]


  1. I love the expressions on both their faces! Hoochie really does look like she is intently listening. I agree, they ARE adorable together!

  2. This is beautiful and I love watching show horses go through their paces.

  3. Yes, a great capture.
    It is thrilling.

  4. A great shot!! Hoochie is so elegant as she walk, that long legged is great. Happy Thursday!


  5. They look as tight in their pas de deux as Fred and (aptly tinged) Ginger.

    Intriguingly Tori Amos has given us not only a good background song but she also shows us which exact muscles are best utilized in the saddle.

  6. Great shot and entry for Thursday's Challenge. Beautiful horse and they do look great together!
