Friday Photo Flashback

Friday Photo Flashback

Here I am at about 16 years old. I look back at this picture and I can just see and feel the contentedness….

SGR 36-1

I have always preferred to ride bareback. It’s just so natural and perfect. Being one with this amazing animal, full of power, that incredible horse smell.

It’s hard to top in my book.

Oh your photos make me envious.. You have the most adorable photos. It's like really a photoshoot for some nature magazine of that sort..

This looks like a good one for your computer desktop!

ps. I confess find myself living vicariously through your pictures - riding a horse in that field... *dreamy sigh*

Thank you for sharing all the fresh air with us apartment living folks! :)

Oh wow, what a combination of prowess and beauty!

I dug out my high school memories hehehe.

Also, I would like to ask a simple favor if you could. We entered our daughter into a smile contest. If you could please cast a vote for her, it would be so much of a help!

To cast your vote, please go to this link. Please look for Jillian Rylie Cottrill. Thank you very much for your help!

What an awesome picture! I always wanted to ride a horse! But, I think I would prefer the use of a saddle.

You look very peaceful and content!

i have never rode a horse.. and i'm married to an ex-rodeo/ranch cowboy, who still carries on the cowboy ways just without a horse now. There's NO doubt in my mind or his, we'll have horses in the near future. But I want to KNOW this feeling your talking about. Not just admire it thru your pics!

Beautiful photo, I love that you have this to look back on your "carefree" days. I don't think we could ever appreciate those days enough at the time.
