This is one of the stampedes I found myself in the path of and photographed until they were getting too close and I found a tree to stand behind. The sound of thundering hooves is just like in the movies. Talk about a RUSH!

Great stampedes images. What would you have done if they scented you behind the tree and stopped and circled around you?

That is the best thing about the horses. They are not aggressive at all with people. They were stampeding for the sake of stampeding as a herd. Nothing violent. The horses are all around us when we are photographing them and never an aggressive move on their part with us. However, we just don't want to get in their way because, after all, they are wild horses. The key is to give them their space.

We are in Fountain Hills, just outside Scottsdale and Phoenix is maybe 25 minutes.
Flagstaff is about 2.5 hours north from our home.
