On this last Sunday of 2014, we had our weekly ritual of horseback riding. I love this particular shot, as it comes out so clear, yet the action still could be seen from the dust / sand flying around, left by the horses legs.
My little one insisted on wearing his GoPro Camera (on his helmet), a gift from his grandparents from his last birthday 3 weeks ago.

When they are not used to being together in such a close proximity, some horses are just too unhappy that the others are invading their space. This morning was such a case, when my older son was riding with a friend.
Being a beginner, I am quite pleased that he was not panic, and most importantly, he stayed on the horse’s back and continued.

From distance, I watched how this man rode his horse. Living in Jakarta, it’s quite unusual to see people ride western. So for me personally, it was quite a show.
Later on as we chatted, I found out that this very lively Australian guy, whose first job when he was young was to break horses, now makes saddles as a hobby! Beautiful saddles with intricate design. I wish I can see his collections and take pictures of all.
