equine session | arab + pintabian + appaloosa | Knysna

“The horse was a pure-bred Arab. She came, bright and dancing, flaunting into the ring, her tail held high over her quarters, her silken mane flowing over the crest of her neck. Her head was fine-boned and delicate, with the concave line of the true Arab horse. Her dark, lustrous eyes were fringed with long lashes and the nostrils wrinkling her velvet muzzle were huge black pits.

She moved around the ring like a bright flame, her pricked ears delicate as flower petals. Her legs were clean and unblemished and her small hooves were polished ivory.  Jinny sat entranced, hardly breathing, and then her breath burst out of her in a throbbing gasp. She loved the chestnut mare. As if all their long day’s travelling had only been for this. As if she had come all the way from Stopton only for this, to see this sudden gift of perfection.”
― Patricia Leitch, For Love of a Horse

The beautiful Arabian, Pintabian (99% Arab 1% Pinto) and Appaloosa X Arab (50% Arab) horses of Oxbow farm in Knysna were a joy to photograph. Mr T and I spent a couple of early evenings photographing these glorious creatures. More words are unnecessary.

This is the same young Arab colt, featured in my blog post titled EARNING TRUST. Here young Sheetan is learning to how wear a halter and to allow someone to touch his legs and examine his hooves for the first time.
