EN loves photos shot between the ears! 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] with a quick blurb about the photo’s story. This week’s View comes to us from Joanne Murphy in Connecticut.
From Joanne Murphy: “This is between the ears of my competition horse Wildwood Skier (Tucker) at Fairfield Beach in Fairfield, Conn. I ride there all winter. So far this year, we have managed to log in 35 days at the beach since Dec. 1. I don’t have an indoor to go to (my choice) because I can get a good gallop in at the beach at least once a week. My racehorse friend Tucker wouldn’t have it any other way. There is 2 feet of snow on the beach above the high tide line, but we made a trail along with the dog people. I don’t go anywhere now without my shovel!”
Here are other ears photos from EN readers taken this past week:
From Christi Barnes: “Enjoying a Valentine’s Day sunset in Maryland with my Valentine, my 18-year-old OTTB Reilly.”
From Jamie Oakman in Pittsburgh, Pa.: “It was Valentine’s Day and one of the few days that was nice enough for a ride, and I picked our Tennessee Walking Horse mare Sierra that day. My husband and I don’t do gifts for each other, but try to find other ways to show our appreciation for each other. So I made this heart for him in the snow in our backyard via horseback.”
From Erin Sloan: “This photo is looking between the ears of my horse Morning Glory at my first pony from 20 years ago, Ben, with his rider Gracie Field. We’re out enjoying a sunny afternoon in between snowstorms in Nova Scotia, Canada.”
