Le Gardian Keeping Control

By Lillian  
This was taken on our last evening there in the sea
as we were reluctantly getting ready for home, a last run and manes flying

Previously while the horses were taking a break (they do after every run)
they had all made an escape!! and at top speed 'galloped home' with
the six Gardians that had taken their eyes off them moving like lightning to catch up
all we saw in the distance...was dust!!GrinGrinGrin as they hit the road track

Hope that you like this one showing more of the wild horses

I love these Lillian. I don't think anyone could see too many of them. The horses look like they really enjoy doing this. Truly excellent images.......Sandy

I agree with Sandy looks like they are really enjoying themselves Lillian. This shot this morning equally brilliant nice to see the guy in the background keeping a close eye on them. Do they gallop far? It must be a great way to exercise the horses and keep them looking healthy and fit, Jo would love to see this am sure

Well Lillian, these images from you and other people have been stunning and a pleasure to view, I am glad as an retired judge that I did not have to choose a winner from these as they are all awesome, my UA has gone to a young lady riding one of these magnificent animals today, congratulations to all of you for stunning photography.
