Many years ago I spent some time working with horses and I will never forget the thrill of galloping along some of Sligo’s beautiful beaches . Giving a good horse the reins and letting it go at its fastest on a perfect stretch of sandy beach is an incredible experience.
It left me with a fondness for horses and whenever I,m out and about I find myself glancing into fields whenever I see one. Trying to photograph them is easier said than done as I find they are either over friendly and come too close to the camera or are very wary and head for the hills as soon as you open the gate. That said here’s some of my favourite shots.
