Photo Challenge: 23 Horses at Sunset

Sunsets are beautiful. Horses are beautiful. Horses at sunset? Doubly beautiful.

This week we wanted to see your horses at sunset (or sunrise in one case) and readers, you did not disappoint. Whatever the season, whatever the scenery — summer, winter, fall, spring, desert, snow, grassy field — we’ve got a smorgasbord of sunset scenery in this week’s photo challenge! The photography talent of our readers (or the photographers they know) truly knows no bounds, as is evidenced by the gorgeous photos below.
