View Full Version : Facebook Group: As Seen Through Horses' Ears

I started a Facebook group (http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_208236055879418) for people to share their world from horseback by posting pictures taken while out riding. I think it will be great fun to see where people ride around the world!

Hope some of you will want to join and give the rest of us a glimpse of your riding terrain. :yes:

Cheers, Lisa

Fun idea! I just joined... now how do you post pictures without linking all the pics of my son's motorcycle, prom, and other non-horsey pictures?

Jun. 13, 2011, 04:26 PM

1) Click "View photos" (right side of the page)
2) Chose "Create an Album"
3) "Select photos" (from your harddrive)


Looking forward to seeing your bit of the world. :winkgrin:

Love the idea! I just asked to join too. I love taking picture while riding so often carry my camera with me.

Didn't mean to set it up so approval was necessary, but I can't figure out how to change that! Everyone is welcome!

I just asked to join as well - what a great idea!

Jun. 15, 2011, 12:54 AM
65 members in just over 24 hours. :D And some really wonderful pictures everyone is posting. Something about seeing those horse ears in the picture makes it so possible to imagine being there yourself...

Thanks so much to everyone who joined and shared their ride glimpses!

Just posted some pics from a ride last week- what a cool site!

Just thought I would update this thread. We now have 1,631 members in As Seen Through Horses' Ears and 4,831 photos posted from ALL OVER THE WORLD.

This is one of my favorite things on FB. I've posted a few pics and I love seeing horses all over the world. Thanks for starting this group!

It is a VERY fun page. I haven't posted anything lately, long story short this has not been a good year for my usual trail rides due to non horsey matters but it's always fun to see the pix!

Through the seen through the ears page we met a woman from Denmark. Last year she came to stay w/our neighborhood (she purchased her ticket and we provided housing, our horses to ride, and transport). We have had the BEST time w/her. She was very brave to take a chance on us and we are really happy she did. She sponsored 2 from our neighborhood last summer and they went all over Denmark. I had conflicting plans last year but hope to go next summer. She comes back next week for another 2 weeks. And it looks like a few more Danes that the 2 met while in Denmark will be coming next April.

So a really nice way to meet people is on this page :)

Thanks for bumping this up!

Great idea! All of my non horsey friends love my "horse cam" photos - I am going and will post in a moment!

OK, time to include the golden palomino fuzzy ears over there...

Don't change it! Other FB groups that are open without needing permission to join get all kinds of SPAM!

This is my favorite group on FB :). Susan Ross's pictures from the Scottish Highland KILL me....I'm homesick for a place I've never even been to!

I agree! I love her pictures! She could make a calendar out of them.

I love the calender idea!

I'm so glad you bumped this thread up! I've asked to join. I've always felt the world looks best when seen through horse's ears! :yes:

Joined this group a while ago. Just dropping by to tell you that I love it and it really brightens my daily FB feed. Great idea!

Dec. 16, 2013, 07:14 AM
Isn't it great? Except now I totally want to ride in New Zealand, Australia, England, Denmark.... pretty much everywhere. So great to see all the different parts of the world through horses ears.

My favorite group too! LOVE seeing Jon Tanner's pictures from Utah....he captures the most fabulous scenery.....and the scariest trails :eek:

Hi Everyone. Just thought I would update about the ASTHE group. We are now 6,292 members strong! We are starting a project to produce a calender from the group pictures. More information can be found at the pinned post at the top of the group.

If you aren't already a member, come on by and check out the scenery!!! Better yet, join the group and post your own ride pictures!

Cheers, Lisa

That is cute but some of those locations have made me very jealous! :)

I joined this group yesterday and for the past two days it's been my favorite thing on facebook! I find it hard not to "like" every single photo that's posted :) Thanks for starting it!

The "As Seen Through Horses' Ears" FB group has been growing exponentially lately, and hit 20,000 members today!

I'm so excited to join this international group. When the rain stops, I will get out and take a pic of my favorite Iowa 'through the ears' view--coming out of the woods on top of a hill with a vista of fields, stream, hills and forest.

I've GOT to remind myself to check it out this evening when I'm home! It sounds wonderful!

Jun. 20, 2014, 06:58 PM
It's my favorite place on Facebook. I enjoy seeing the photos. I am also glad that you stuck to the rules about naming locations.

Jun. 20, 2014, 08:13 PM
I too am a fan of that. I just love the scenery variety, through the ears.

Jun. 21, 2014, 02:55 PM
I am on it! I posted once. I will post again when I have a post worthy view. I love to see all of the pictures from around the world. It is so fun to see that we are all doing the same thing -- even in Singapore!
