Sometimes, it’s nice to jump on with no saddle and no worries. It’s not very practical to train bareback but I do love a ride every now and then sans saddle. My friends recently got me this awesome duster sweater that I just love. It’s a great sweater I can wear casually, riding, or even dress it up.

Galloping bareback up the hill.
A winter storm is coming in but very much welcome with the drought we are in.
In a week full of thanks, I’m thankful for horses among many other things.
Happy Thanksgiving week!

I hear from so many friends and family that they would love to know what it is like to be in the saddle but are a tad too timid to try. For those that ever want to know what it feels like, it’s pure freedom. It’s the only sport where human and animal work so closely together. It’s amazing the power the animals have yet don’t choose to abuse it. In Bosnia, we rode in a different direction each day and each direction was full of different views. Here are a few photos from in the saddle 🙂
Fall was in full swing. I love the changing of seasons and I loved hearing the leaves crunch under the horses feet.

The first frosty morning before the snow came!
Riding through a creek.
Riding by ruins.
Everything was perfectly dusted.
This is one of my favorites.
I have sooo many images to share and I love to look back at them. I’ll try to swap some fashion posts in between but there are many more horse photos to come!

I’ve just returned from the most magical trip to Bosnia. It was a dream come true to be able to get to spend an entire week surrounded by horses. I was on a week long riding holiday in Bosnia at Kupres farm which I can’t wait to share all of the details and photos in the coming days. One afternoon during our stay our host, Mate, offered to take us out to find some herds of wild horses and of course we were ecstatic to go. We drove far out into the plains to find them where they were living as free and happy as can be. This was one of the most memorable moments for me because seeing these horses surviving on their own in the wild just showed me their strength and independence.
One of the stallions making sure no other stallions got close to his horses. He was gorgeous.
So many of them just grazing.
They had no interest in us but they had no fear of us either.
They had all the land in the world to call home.
When we left, we even saw an eagle or a falcon. It was hard to tell but both resided in the area.
I hope I get to observe wild horses again, it was peaceful and inspiring.
