Unlike last year, I didn’t take hundreds and hundreds of photos at the expo. But I did get some that I figured I might as well share here, so…

This was one of the Colorado Driving Society’s workshops, where they were demonstrating how to harness, hitch and drive a horse.

Off they go!

I like the studded detail on this harness:

He was really popular! 😀 I think he liked all the attention. You can read more about his and Morgan’s story here.

Annnnd this wraps up my real-horse-photo-spam posts! I mainly took these pictures for myself, either for reference or for new ideas, but I also hope someone else out there might have enjoyed them!

I also got a few quick shots of what I think are Gypsy ponies, but I’m not positive. They sure are pretty though.

Floofy feets!
