The Horse Pull


We recently went to a horse pull competition.
These draft horses were really spectacular creatures - beautiful, large, and powerful.


They worked in two horse teams, with the winning team pulling 8,000 pounds!
With horses, handlers, and spectators - 
there was a lot of interesting subject matter for picture making.

I'll be working on this collection over time,
but here are a few edited images.




Happy creating to you!

  1. Wonderful working horses - such strength in their build. The countryside must have looked so beautiful in the days when horses were used on the land before the invention of tractors. I love the harnesses and can smell the saddle soap!
