52 Weeks Of Donna's Life

Donna's Photo Challenge

19. Horses And Humans


Through the ages, man has discovered that horses can be domesticated to help him in his transportation and everyday work. Horses have carried men on their backs to fight wars and help the human travel rather long distances. It was advantageous to harness the energy of horses for pulling wagons, carriages and freight of all kinds. But with the arrival and general use of fuel-driven engines, the horse has been relegated to many of man’s sports’ diversions such as racing and polo. Here you see a polo player during a match at the Sarasota Polo Club (located in Lakewood Ranch). He is reacting to the latest play and racing toward the action. The horses in this particular sport are trained to help the riders as they make quick turns and fast sprints to follow the hit of the ball toward their team’s goal.

An enthusiastic amateur photographer, I enjoy picturing the events, people, animals and things in my life. And so joining in the "52 Week Challenge" of interpreting life through a lens sounds as if it will be a lot of fun -- presenting my view through the lens and seeing how others in our photography group interpret their views concerning a given subject.
