These beautiful Lusitano horses originate from Portugal. This is from a shoot I did for a magazine at the stud in North Wales.

Many thanks for looking Smile

The stud must have been so pleased with these images Mari, wonderful captures of wonderful horses. The mare is an absolute beauty and seems to know it too. The foal is all high stepping legs and fragile nervousness.
Tastefully framed this will grace a wall anywhere. Well done again my friend.

An awesomely stunning portrait of these beautiful creatures. Lovely movement in the mares' mane & tail and the vignette draws the eye right into the centre of the image. Shortlisted and User Award given to this incredibly poignant photo.
