Photo Challenge: 35 Gorgeous Autumn Scenes From Around Horse Nation

You might argue that there’s no way to improve upon a beautiful autumn landscape. We argue that anything looks better with a horse in it: here are 35 reader-submitted photos that prove our point.

October is quite possibly one of the loveliest times of year, depending on where you are in the country. In Horse Nation, it certainly lends itself well to some picture-perfect moments, as evidenced by this week’s photo challenge!
