AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Wow! Nice pic of the horses. Must be a work out for them moving through the water.

I've never ridden in the ocean, but crossed many a creek on my best friend's stead...a muddy mess it usually is, but who cares when you are on the back of a magnificent creature...wind in the hair...

Be well friend...s

It would be interesting to feel what it would be like to be riding a horse in deeper water while the horse had to actually swim for a short distance. People must do it while crossing deeper rivers. Must be an odd but exilerating feeling.

I guess at the same time the horses will get a nice cool off in the waters too :)
