It's hard to choose, but I think the photo of Miko flauting a blue ribbon while his owner beams beside him best sums up the idea of a horse enjoying a successful second career with a happy owner.

This is a great action shot that literally leaps out of the page. Plus it will remind people that minis are real working horses. FI to Bill, the Standardbred is pulling a Meadowbrook.

The nokota without a doubt! This represents an entire breed that is on its second career- first having been the isolated and cruelly treated horse of the northern plains once the horses were deemed undesirable
