Even a world-famous writer/photographer/ wilderness explorer such as myself needs to take some time to relax, so I spent the weekend at my ranch. Some folks needed help with their horses so I agreed to give them the training they sought after. Why not, after all I dabble in the philanthropy business a little bit too. How awesome would it be if all this were true?!? Actually, a friend of mine brought in a wonderful trainer from Arizona to work with these fine folks and their beautiful horses. She even took the time to train me in the art of horse photography. For two whole days she screamed at these horses and I hollered at her to get out of my shots! Thankfully trainers can be easily erased in photoshop! What a fantastic weekend, I am now officially hooked on horses.
