Great composition! You were there at exactly the right moment. The delight on the girls face - to see the horse - is great.

Funny scene! and I did not know that you hd rangers in towns! I thought that they always were in places like Texas or Montana! (french ignorance, never mind! Ü)

Police get a bad press, but in most towns where you see them on horseback they seem much more friendly, and people respond better to them; maybe it's the horse that calms them all down. Nice shot, great expression on the girl's face.

A very good shot with a tricky light, the expression on the girl face is perfect.

What a wonderful multiple portrait. You have the girl, the gentle look on the officer's face, the noble horse, the woman with her baby looking up at the officer. Really a fine capture!

The police use the horses for crowd control also. I have seen them use the horses effectively during Christmas rush around the shopping areas.
I like seeing the cop checking out the girl!

What a beautiful scene. The perfect moment, made all the more perfect with the light on the water and thru the trees.

That is a great shot! I like the light in the background.

You could write a short story about this one.

Very nice photo, lots to see and nice light too. We have mounted police here in Leeds but I only rarely see them.

Oh how beautiful this photo!

The light is perfect in this photo! And that smile on the girl's face! She's flirting, methinks, with the cop (not the horse)...

Excellent work!

Nice scene. The horse silhouetted against the sun works well.
