This past weekend, I had a dear friend’s wedding in Ohio! I was able to talk Chris into second shooting for me! (He’s my favorite second shooter) Instead of the normal- hop a flight and rush to the wedding, we took a few days of road tripping! We came across the gorgeous little lake, and then stopped up at Grayson Highlands in VA! Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been obsessed with horses. I remember begging my dad for horses repeatedly. So much, he put us in horseback riding lessons and gymnastics on horses. Wild horses are the most beautiful thing i’ve ever seen in my life. I could gush about them all day long.
For people who don’t know anything about horses and are thinking of stopping here to see them. PLEASE REMEMBER: These are WILD horses. They are not your pet! Wait for them to come to you. Never pet a horse while it’s eating grass (it will bite you). If their ears pin back, they aren’t happy. Never stand behind a horse (they will kick you). Never stand between a momma horse and her colt. Never stand between the stallion and his colt/mare. Also, please don’t bring your dogs! Wild horses are known for kicking dogs in the face. <3
With all of that being said, it was still a serious dream to be here! I literally could’ve sat there and photographed them and pet them all day. You’ll see me with one specific stallion for a ton of photos. That stallion came straight to me and let me pet him for a good 30 minutes, if not longer. Absolutely magical night!
