An Old Friend

This is a pony I used to know at the rescue.  He found a good home and, in this photo, has just won a hunter jumper championship.  He is a friendly, outgoing, cheerful pony, and I don't like to see the expression on his face here - it looks like his bit is causing him pain. His rider looks very happy. For other photos like this, see Kris McCormack's blog entry Our Lyin' Eyes.


  1. I have to say that he does not look happy. Mind you, it can be hard to read horses' facial expressions sometimes, at least I find it can. Sometimes when they are eating, for example, they can look quite miserable. Maybe they are just making sure no one else will get their meal.

  2. That is very true about the expressions they make while eating!

  3. Yes, maybe his sworn enemy is sneaking up behind him.
