These 10 beautiful photos were taken at just the right time and capture the horse-human bond that means so much to so many equestrians.
There's something amazing about the horse-human bond. Many equestrians are lucky enough to experience the magic behind this special relationship. Perhaps it's the fact that horses actually carry riders, and that we have to give over so much trust to them for that to be successful. Or maybe it's that horses have such a different mentality about them than cats are dogs do. Or maybe it's something that we can't explain at all.
If you spend time watching a horse and rider who have known each other for years, you're likely to catch a glimpse of it from time to time. It's in the way they communicate, in the way they spend time together doing nothing, and it's in their riding.
