If you happen to be out for a hack, are riding in some obscure place, or just take some cool photos aboard your mount, send them to [email protected] including a quick blurb about this photo’s story and write “The View” as the title. Today’s View comes to us from Africa courtesy of Paul Swart.
Recently, Area 7 Adult Riders Paul Swart, Elizabeth Lawrence, Julie Cayer and family / friends returned from a horse safari in Botswana’s Okavango Delta with Okavango Horse Safaris. Paul is the owner of Natural Migrations, a horse and photographic safari outfitter based in Bend, Oregon and he highly recommends partaking in a horse safari in Africa when the annual eventing season comes to an end.
Dr. David Paton, a well-known veterinarian from British Columbia also recently went on one of Paul’s horse safaris and came into close contact with a herd of elephants while riding – as the picture illustrates – riding and taking photos of animals at the same time can be quite challenging but Paul guarantees there are no judges and no faults – just a lot of fun and exhilarating riding alongside the animals of Africa!
