Come on Sally, it’s Melbourne Cup day, time for us to get going if we’re going to win it!


About eremophila

I live in the Australian countryside with my animals. Together we explore the land around us and their connection with the world helps me to see what I would otherwise be blind to. They are my teachers. My aim is to convey this other way of seeing through my photography.

    Fred, I never tire of your horse-riding photos. Please take more! I would also like to know how you learned to ride. I am personally quite frightened of riding horses.

      Glad you like them Heather! Sally and I had become good friends before I started my riding lessons, and we trust each other. Yes, I’ve fallen off a few times, but it’s SO great to be up high where I can see the world, that it’s worth a couple of bumps. I’d suggest you find a horse (and owner) you can trust, and build up confidence first, before actually mounting. Take as much time as is needed – weeks or months if that is what it takes. Too few people put enough thought into that early stage of the process. Yet it’s a vital step in success. I do warn you though……horse riding can be addictive!

    🙂 Wonderful poise!

  4. I laughed when I saw you perched on the back of Sally, Fred. I am wondering what you were thinking as you surveyed your kingdom from on high.
