Poetry In Motion

Our Art on Canvas Equine Photography series continue with another from our “snow and winter” series.  They are beautiful, elegant and truly “poetry in motion.”

WHEN calm is the night, and the stars shine bright,
The sleigh glides smooth and cheerily;
And mirth and jest abound,
While all is still around,
Save the horses’ trampling sound,
And the horse-bells tinkling merrily.

But when the drifting snow in the traveller’s face shall blow,
And hail is driving drearily,
And the wind is shrill and loud,
Then no sleigh shall stir abroad,
Nor along the beaten road
Shall the horse-bells tinkle merrily.

But to-night the skies are clear, and we have not to fear
That the time should linger wearily;
For good-humor has a charm
Even winter to disarm,
And our cloaks shall wrap us warm,
And the bells shall tinkle merrily.

The Amazing Beauty of Horses

We love equine photography and have photographed many equine events and shows and they always inspire us in our photography and for our love of horses. Riding and photographing them is wonderful but taking a sleigh ride in snow is another wonderful treat altogether. You not only enjoy the beauty of the ride but also appreciate these beautiful horses and how they serve us. What truly wonderful creatures they are!

The horses paw and prance and neigh,
Fillies and colts like kittens play,
And dance and toss their rippled manes
Shining and soft as silken skeins;…
