Here’s a collection of ‘between the ears’ shots taken, whilst out horse riding in Africa. We all know some of the best views in the world are seen from the saddle and through the ears of a horse…. so here’s a few of our very best ones.

Meet Colin… Isabel used to pass this crazy croc each day on her ride to the stables – wouldn’t want to meet him on a dark night!

These beauties never fail to leave you awestruck – they’re such unique animals. See them on horse safari in Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, or Zimbabwe.

I challenge you to find a more exciting moment in the saddle than viewing these majestic animals from horseback.

Did you know: Although the elephant trunk is really huge, weighing about 400 pounds, it is so dexterous it can pick up very tiny things including a single grain of rice.
