Just riding down the road... by thewatersphotos

Just riding down the road...

We live in a rural setting. As I was driving to town I noticed a gentleman riding this horse on the side of the road. I stopped, told him I was a photography and asked if I could take their picture. "Sure!", he said. We talked while I snapped photos. It turns out he trains horses for others to ride in rodeos, mainly Barrel Racing. We exchanged phone numbers so I can see him training.
I always love photos of horses, you captured this one's spirit quite nicely.

Very cool! Good for you for asking. I have been tempted a few times to ask people about taking photos, but I am very much an introvert and so far is has not happened.

what a terrific close0-up shot
February 26th, 2021  
Wonderful capture - watching the training will be awesome

What a proud head!! Nice shot, Gary.

Looking forward to those shots. My brother used to compete in rodeos.

Beautiful face.

Your willingness to ask him got you a great photo. He probably thought he would also be in the pic. Beautiful shot of the horse.

You’ve captured the character of the horse
February 26th, 2021  
Love the way he is side looking at you. Great shot

What a great portrait you took!
It would be so much fun to see him training! I hope to see photos of that too some time!

fortune favors the brave! Nice simple bridle.

Nice portrait and details
February 26th, 2021  
I think they're fascinating creatures. Great capture!
February 26th, 2021  
Well that was an interesting stop....he would be so happy for your interest! A new friend too!
February 26th, 2021  
Great shot

I like the way the horse is holding his head up - tall and proud. Nice tones in this portrait.

Awesome Gary. I would not have the nerve to stop and ask to take the shot. I'd probably just have to shoot the backend as they walk away. This angle is so much better. :)

What a nice man and a great shot of his horse, fav.

@theredcamera Thanks so much, Ellen! I don't photograph horses often so it was fun to see this one and have the rider be so agreeable.

@rwaterhouse Thanks, Roger. I, too, think of myself as an introvert, but find it easier to speak up when my camera is in hand. : - )

@milaniet Thank you, Milanie.

@sherimiya Thank you, Sheri!

@cwbill Thanks, Bill! He is in most of the shots, but I am often reluctant to show people's faces, even with their permission.
February 27th, 2021  
@k9photo Thanks, Kate. That was my hope.
February 27th, 2021  
@dora Thanks, Dora! Yes, his side face was better than looking straight at me.
February 27th, 2021  
@ingrid01 Thanks, Ingrid!
February 27th, 2021  
@anniesue Indeed, Annie! Thank you!
February 27th, 2021

@rhoing Thanks, Thom! I like seeing them from a distance!
February 27th, 2021  
@happypat It was indeed a great stop! I hope to see him again.

@denful Thank you, Denise!
February 27th, 2021  
@randystreat Thanks, Kathy! I liked his head position as well.
February 27th, 2021  
@novab Ha! Thank you, Nova! (By the way...is that your real name? I know you live in Nova Scotia and assume this is a "nom de plume".) With camera in hand, it is easier.
February 27th, 2021  
@pattyblue Thank you!
February 27th, 2021  
@thewatersphotos yes, it’s real and so am I. 🤓 I think you are the first one here to ask and that’s okay with me.
