My nine-year-old daughter loves horses. She’s been enthralled by them since she was a toddler. Her equestrian interest seems to grow each year.
We don’t own a horse, although my daughter would love it if we did! We don’t have any horse property, so it would be impracticable for us to own one or care for one. Besides, horses can be expensive!
What we decided to do for her this year, as an extracurricular learning activity, is have her take some horse riding lessens, including how to care for a horse. We found a nearby stable that offers this sort of thing. She’s only had one lesson so far, but she loved every minute of it! She was really in her element.
I took my Fujifilm X100F camera along to capture her first lesson. I wasn’t allowed full access (in other words, I had to stay behind the fence), so the camera’s Digital Teleconverter came in handy. I used my Classic Chrome recipe to capture these out-of-camera JPEGs. The X100F is great for family snapshots. It just seems to effortlessly capture good photos.
And here are some other horse photographs (not related to my daughter’s riding lesson) that I captured while at the stables during that same time:
