I just happened to be in a great spot to photograph these trail riders returning from an extended ride at White Sands National Monument, New Mexico.  I had been looking for a vantage point to photograph the sunset without any of the numerous people in the picture.  But I didn’t mind these people, not one bit.

My little Canon SX-50 easily switches from stills to video, and I just couldn’t resist showing the beautiful motion of these horses kicking up the sand.

The lead rider is Dacodah Herkenhoff of Acacia Riding Adventures near Soccoro.  Two of the riders have young children in the saddle with them.  Here is the video:
