Reader Photo Challenge: It May Not Be the Olympics…

… but we stillĀ have a lot to be proud of.

Inspired by the Olympics and the gold, silver and bronze medals the athletes are earning, we wanted to see what our readers were bringing home with their horses. So here areĀ five readers, their ponies and their prizes. After all, we’re faster, higher, stronger — together.

Keep at it, and go riding, Horse Nation!
