Capturing the magic of moonlight!
I wonder if the magic of riding by moonlight would wane if there were more regular dates to enjoy our trails by moonlight!
Young and old are always blown away by the excitement of heading out into a darkening sky and searching in anticipation for the moment when the bright moon pops over the Witzenberg range.
Situated high up in the shadow of the imposing mountain range., the moon is late in showing her face, but riding under an ever darkening sky, you can see the valley below lighting up until the rays brighten up the gulley and suddenly the moon crests the high peaks.
Riding home on paths lit by moonlight, guests always exclaim in surprise at the long moonshadows of horse and rider.
This past weekend we enjoyed 2 beautiful moonlight rides, on the one ride there were children who had never seen a full moon rise and certainly no one had experienced moonrise on horseback before!
Back home at the hitching post, once the horses were unsaddled and grazing for the night, we sat back on the lawn enjoying the magic and great company of guests from around the world!
Thank you Søren Schaller for capturing some of the stunning moments and sharing with us! We hope to see you back in the saddle soon!
