@ Bobbbbb. I have a question. Are quarter horses used much over there? I don't see many (any) warmbloods (or the typical breeds used for dressage) over here that are buckskin (unless they're using a quarter horse). (again, my disclaimer: I'm not a dressage person.. though some of my friends show dressage. (I rode english & jumped as a teen.. and then got hooked on cutting horses)). .. so just sayin' .. I was curious.

It's not a buckskin, but rather a body clipped plain bay :)

Could be that too - but the head is also clipped then. That is not unheard of, but pretty time consuming and not every horse will stand for it.

bobb d..... That is a 'stunning' portrait of this horse. I'm sure the owner will want that mounted on their wall.

Yep, it's very clearly clipped-- you can see the clipper marks, the extremely short hair, and the trademark color change toward the center of the head of a plain clipped bay.
He's also in a high-end double bridle so is likely and upper level dressage horse, which means they get clipped head to toe in colder weather. (JMO of course)

It's a lovely picture and I'd love to have one of similar quality of any of my horses.

Every now and then I hang out in the arena with one of the horses to remind myself why it's so much easier to get better shots when you have assistants. LOL.
.. just a couple of late day low key 'hangin' out' snapshots of my little stallion, Ranger.
..walking into a spot of sun.

I've never tried photograhing horses until recently. They are a tough subject. I either get the "backend pose" or a face shot with a mouthful of food and lips that are askew... But they certainly are beautiful creatures.

I already posted this one in landscapes...

Nothing too exciting, but here's my boy Ivan using the tree as a scratching post!
