Nitro, Chris and I Attended A Horsemanship Clinic

This weekend we stopped by a Brock Griffith Horsemanship Clinic to take photos for my horse blog HorseVa. A Horsemanship Clinic helps riders learn methods of communicating with their horses through steps and effective ways to practice the many facets of Natural horsemanship. Natural horsemanship is the philosophy of working with horses by appealing to their natural instincts and herd instincts. I was with my husband Chris and my dog Nitro and it was very hot so we took some photos  and then we left before Nitro got to hot. Here are some of our photos. Enjoy!

I think in this shot he was playing with a long blade of grass. Silly boy!
 Pretty pony...

My two "hot" boys....


  1. Nitro they should have let you in there you would have shown those horsies a thing or two

  2. Does it take a long time for Nitro to cool down when he's hot? Takes Rowdy forever. I worry about him on hot days.


  3. Awesome photos...beautiful horses, beautiful dog! Too bad it was so hot.

  4. I love that first photo of Nitro, with the funny face! :)
