We have some sort of meta topic in several subforums already, where special posts or threads or videos are collected. So I thought it was time to have something like that for pictures as well, so that especially great pictures are easier to find for new members. I will start adding picures that are special to me, and then continuoulsly edit new ones into this message. Please feel free to post your favourite AND pictures as well, preferably with a little explanation why you like the picture.
I will try to organize the following pictures according to their content (groundwork, riding, going for walks, etc.).
____________________________________GroundworkBarbara and Beau
I absolutely love this picture - not just because it shows what a power package Beau has become over the years, but also because of the things it seems to say about Barbara's and Beau's interaction in terms of Barbara being an active and inspiring partner, and Beau focusing on his movement out of his own accord.Zoe and BJ

, experimenting and thinking hard
AND requires a lot of engagement of the human as well
One reason why I chose this picture is because it illustrates nicely how you can motivate a horse to move: not by pushing or begging, but by actively participating in the game.Anat and her horses
What I love most about these pictures is how focused and at the same time ever so calm and smooth their interaction seems to be.
...and how much love and closeness and fun there is in their interaction.RidingMarina, Zoe and their horses
. I love thei way of experimenting with their horses and using riding as just another game they play instead of some very serious activity.Other activitiesSue and her family at the beach
