Lots of Dressage Going on for Me at the Moment ...

So there I was, on a plane heading to Indiana! I was on my way to work the International Buckskin Horse World Show for Don & Deb Trout. As World Shows go, it was Awesome! Kept me on my toes and gave me a lot to do for The Trouts.

But then, once the dust settled, I got to spend a day with friend and Dressage Rider, Amy Latka and her sweet OTTB, Jewel. What Fun! I want to do more Ranch Calls and it was super sweet of them to let me practice a bit to see what I might be getting into. Here's a few from our session ...











Then I had friends riding in a Pomona Chapter Dressage Show locally so I went to knock the dust off my actual under saddle dressage shooting a bit. Really lovely show ... shade trees, nice horses, and just a neat day! And, I got to spend time with a favorite Dressage Person in my life, Susie Peacock!

















Photo Shoot up on the Mountain ...

It's said that "practice makes perfect" and I'm all about perfecting my craft! Thanks to my mentor, Don Trout, I'm using flash and working with light in my own stuff. A local creative, Gina, rang me up for a practice session and we were on! Here's what we came up with.

As a side note, I never find anything really pretty about the forest in my area. I come originally from the East Coast where forests are so beautiful and then moved to The South where it doesn't get any prettier to shoot those lovely old tress with moss gently blowing in the branches. But I was actually happy with the backgrounds for this shoot. And, of course there's a conceptual image brewing from this as well ... stay tuned! :)
