Fun in the Sun

The sun was shining the other day, so Darling agreed to a photo shoot with Steve Holt!. I'm rather happy with the results, though the sun was somewhat bright.

Normally, for you new readers, Darling does not ride in a dress. When I sent a copy of one of the photos to a friend, her remark was "She looks cute, but don't put that online..." She was concerned people would think my kid goes riding in dresses. I, personally, am not bothered by someone riding in a dress...but if you happen to be someone who is, rest assured this was simply a matter of getting a cute photograph. Or two. Or three. Did we succeed?

I love that his brand is so bright and vibrant here!

Darling wasn't about to waste the day in a dress. She had other fish to fry on a sun shiny day and got Steve Holt! all tacked up for a romp in the pasture.

And of course...we may as well spread our wings and fly the friendly skies while we're at it!

I'm chuckling at the riding in the dress part... what about those wellies??? Should have told the emailer that typically the horse wears the dress...

Darling and Steve Holt are a beautiful pair!

I especially love the first one and the way Darling is outlined by the light. Good job!

Tracey, wow, gorgeous photo shoot!! That Steve Holt! is one beautiful boy and Darling is a cutie!! :-D
Riding in a dress? So what? I'd say any ride on a horse is a great ride, what does it matter what the clothing is? Heck I ride my dressage saddle on Gil in jeans, cowboy boots and an Aussie hat, how's that for a combo? LOL
Love all you photos, always a pleasure to see!

Love the second photo-- great shots.

Steve Holt! seems to be turning into quite a nice little jumper. And it's a good shot to Show case Darling's position too!

Definitely succeeded! Such great pics! Love the boots with the dress. I once saw a really pretty photo of a gal I know on her horse in a long dress with bare feet. Practical? No. Beautiful for a photo shoot? YES! Great jumping pic too!

Beautiful shots. If it didn't literally rub me the wrong way, I'd wear shorts. It's hot out there!

All lovely shots. I got married on horseback, riding a white horse and wearing a dark red dress. Steve Holt! looks like he enjoys jumping. Is Darling going to show him this year?
