"May your belly never grumble, may your heart never ache, may your horse never stumble, may your cinch never break."
One lovely Fall afternoon, I had the pleasure of spending time with this little guy, Benson and his horse, Tanner. That's right - his horse. Benson has been riding horses since, well, before he was born. His mother, Amber, is an accomplished horse woman in her own right and is often spotted on the backroads happily clip clopping along. Benson was showing me his horse when I took this picture. I was impressed by the gentleness and trust between Tanner around this little guy. Even though Tanner had a kind and gentle spirit, I could sense his power and respect that he commanded. Benson would grab his lead and pull him around the field like he was walking a dog - and a rather big one at that. It was clear that Tanner had great affection for his little boy. While I had the privilege of capturing a glimpse of this family's life, I think I learned the greater lesson that an old horse and a young boy can be best friends starting from day one. Thank you, Adams family!
