What’s “The View” between your horse’s ears? Our advertising director Molly Gasiewicz has been showcasing views from around the world as part of this cool series for EN.
From Jules Ennis in Gloucester:
This is Jack checking out the Great Lakes of England (a turnout field). It has rained so much in Gloucester that the fields, roads and highways have flooded. Last week Hartpury College had to have a “Rain Day” because the floods were so high no one could get on campus.
From Jennifer Donnelly on the beaches of New York:
My horse Opal on the beach in Northport, NY. The name of the farm is Sandpiper Farm. It is on the North Shore of Long Island. Recently this land (300+ acres) was put into protected agricultural land. I used to ride and take lessons at the farm back in the ’80s when it was a riding school and it hosted a sanctioned event way back then (1985ish??) as well… The town forced its closure back in the early ’90s citing zoning regulation violations.. Now that it has agricultural status again (2012) maybe this property can be again available for enjoyment to equine enthusiasts. It is currently privately owned and maintained.
From New Hampshire courtesy of Sarah Isherwood:
My horse and I are in our 5th season of foxhunting with the Wentworth Hunt here in New Hampshire and I have been affectionately titled the “galloping photographer” for all of the photos I take of our hunts from the saddle. (over 2000 of them this season!) Many of which are taken at speed, one hand on the reins and the other on my little Canon!
From a hack while on holiday in Chile courtesy of Michael and Nathalie Pollard:
While on vacation in Chile, Michael and Nathalie Pollard seemed incapable of staying out of the saddle, and we are much appreciative at EN as they sent us this beautiful view!
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!
From Ellen Broadhurst:
Okay, so they were camel ears. Having ridden the furry beast across the desert to our camp for the evening, I think all eventers should be grateful that they compete equines instead of camelids. Wadi Rum, Jordan is probably best known for its connection with the famed “Lawrence of Arabia,” who based his operations here during the 1917-18 Arab Revolt.
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.
