Since we have finally received some rain, it’s so nice to see the hills so green! I put Maz in this plush, beautiful and green pasture to play with his brother Phillip (the white horse in the photos). They were having a great time so I brought my camera and snapped some pics of them. As much as I love winter, there’s nothing like a sunny barn day to relax and hang out.
Maz was really loving running around!
After they’d run around for a while, they’d stop and pluck some grass.
Then I let them join their other horse friend, Joia, and the birds came swooping in. I wish there was such a thing as a professional horse photographer, I’d be all over that 🙂
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.

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’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.
