Wild Horses of the Salt River in Arizona
A trip to see the Salt river horses in Tonto National Forest is never disappointing. The river, and the desert provide a unique and beautiful setting for these stunning horses.
I was lucky last winter to spend quite a bit of time in the area, but this year I just haven’t had the time. We are doing more art shows, and that has cut into my wild horse time. Which is a bummer. But, a quick 2 day trip was really nice, and I got some wonderful photos.
Evenings on the river are simply magical. I will just let these photos tell you their story.
The golden light, the reflections in the water, it’s simply beautiful.
Quite a few horses in this area have these white masks. I love the uniqueness of it.
Super handsome stallion.
With his yearling son.
Watching them splash is always fun.
Mornings are great for getting the horses in the desert scenery.
Red horses with red mountain as a backdrop.
These goofy guys.
This handsome stallion put on quite a show running full speed, tail held high.
It’s a special place for sure.
I have added a few of these images to my Mary Hone Photography site, and will be adding more. Thanks for being here.
