I have never been a horse person. They were never something I was interested in, never really wanted to even ride one. Maybe I am scared of them. I just keep thinking of my ribs every time I walk by one and how so easily they can just kick and I would be smashed. A good friend of mine is a horse trainer and invited me to go spend the day looking at stables to hold his horses. Naturally, I said yes to the road trip and found some countryside with beautiful light for photographing. Perhaps I will be spending more time at this stable just outside of Chicago. If I do, you will be sure to know with more photos. In the meantime.. enjoy this mini-series from Crete, Illinois.
