The Elevator of Life
This Way, That Way 
Northwestern Stable, Philadelphia, PA  

It is kinda funny that I would go to a horse show.
I am seriously not a horse person.

In my experience there are two kinds of horse people:
The snobs and the down-to-earthers.
am was related to was The Snob.
I have no time for that.
Thus The Snob exited the elevator of my life
some time ago.
Not a Snob 
Northwestern Stable, Philadelphia, PA  

I love that elevator.
"...On your way up
sometimes you have to stop
and let some people off."

If you're a nice person,
you can hop on my elevator.
I like a fun ride.
there's no room for a horse.

The Party's Here! Where I am linking these days.

If you've ever heard of the Devon Horse show, that was my childhood exposure to horses. I'm sure there were some down to earth horse lovers involved, but they were overshadowed by the snob 'who's who and what are they wearing' of it all! I've grown to love down to earth animal folks as I've gotten older! There's a special sensitivity in the hearts of those folks! Lovely shots!

It's been a long time since I've been around horses. I do love them, and these are great photos!

I will throw in my hat with the not-a-snob people any day. I wish I had a horse!

I've never been a horse person! I think they're beautiful, but i'm OK admiring them with my feet firmly on the ground; however, "Not a Snob" looks like he's having a blast!

I love "farm" horse people, they are wonderful, kind, down to earth people!! I am fascinated with horses and I love to photograph them. I have not been on a horse since I was a child!!

Debbie said...

And you images are beautiful!! Sometimes I get lost in one thought ;)

Horses are not my favourite either but I think I could learn to love them. I have certainly learnt to appreciate them. Horse shows can be surprisingly interesting I have found.

Too cute! I hope you would think I was fun enough to hop on your elevator. Mom taught us to be humble and I feel ever so blessed. Kind of a fun gal too. lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC. Great photos!
