Horse and Hound

I recently travelled to Morocco with the lovely News Editor of Horse and Hound Magazine, Amy Mathieson.  She kindly published one of my pictures from the Fantasia Horse event we went to whilst in El Jadid.  It was so good to see it at a half page in the magazine...thanks Amy!  Here are also some other images from the Horse event.

I'd never heard of Lorenzo The Flying Horseman before.  I had no idea what to expect but after quite a few hours of sitting through lots and lots of horse displays (a little tiresome after a time!) it was well worth the wait.  Lorenzo commands his horses so impressively, the connection he has with them is palpable.  It actually brought a tear to my eye to see just how adoring his horses appear to be and how he appears to treat them with such care (I say 'appear' because i'm not to know for sure!).
