Untamed Kate and a Rock & Roll Wedding

Posted in Horses, Photography, Travel by leahyetter on April 29, 2011

It’s a big day for Kate and William but this weekend is a big one for a royal couple in my hometown. My great friends Jessica and Jamie are joining together as one tomorrow in true rock star fashion. I’ve made the journey back east to celebrate with them I’m looking forward to spending the weekend with longtime friends.

During my riding lessons at the South Ranch on Easter Sunday, Kate was running alongside jumping and bucking.

She’s a wild one and it doesn’t take much to excite her.

She got ahead of us, stopped, and then took off throwing her head back with her mane and tail flying in the breeze.

I like visiting with Kate but I don’t think I’ll be taking lessons with her any time soon.  But a ride with her may not be near as rough as my flight was coming out here. The storms in the southeast have been devastating and thankfully I landed in between them. But our decent was so turbulent it felt like we slid in on one wing. I thought I left the wild rides and wind out west but apparently they came with me.

So far the forecast for the wedding of our local royals calls for clear blue skies. I’m craving the sun on my skin and flip flops on my feet.
Have a great weekend my friends, I’ll be in touch soon!

    These pictures reminded me of that song “Wildfire” by Michael Martin Murphy.
