My wife loves horses. Wait…that’s an understatement. She LOVES horses. Ever since she was a young kid. She not only enjoys riding, but also has a lot of books on horses. Name of breeds, country of origin, biology, anatomy, behaviour, competitions, you name it, she’s got it down! So when she told me about Countryside Stables Penang, that she found throught Facebook, I knew it was a hint I had to bring her there.
So I brought my wife and of course – I brought my camera. Photographing fast moving animals is something of a challenge, and pushes the auto-focus abilities of your camera. Also, I’d be in trouble if I didn’t have memories of the happy wife in the stables…haha.
There is an entrance feed of RM5, and a riding feed of RM80/hour. The people there were very friendly and hospitable. It was a very hot and sunny day, and we were the only ones there at the time of visit. We were given a bucket of peanuts to feed the horses. It was only a matter of time before the wife was swarmed by horses. I was worried, but for her, that was an awesome thing. She was all smiles…
After having a full stomach, they went for a run... This photographer started testing his camera's auto-focusing speed... (And his photography-anticipation speed)
