I'm a 20 year-old equine photographer based in Southwestern Ontario. Horses are my both passion and my life support - I'd like to think that I couldn't exist without having them in my life some way! I am an avid dressage rider and natural horsemanship follower; I love the idea of mixing the two using both "popularized" techniques and my own common sense to create a perfectly balanced team. I have been an active member of SARI Therapeutic Riding in Arva, Ontario for nearly six years, including rolls as exercise rider, exercise rider coordinator, horsemanship instructor, lesson volunteer, and photographer. I am a full time student at the University of Western Ontario apparently majoring in Sociology - but we all know my true major is Equestrianism!
Hi, some of the photos are of home (Smithers, BC) and some at the ranch I worked at this summer in the Okanagan. It is a beautiful facility, but has been listed for sale so am not sure what will happen there in the future. Let me know if you are looking at coming to the beautiful northwestern BC, there are lots of great facilities here. I bet the therapeutic riding program must be a real joy for you! I have often thought it would be a real inspiring project to be involved with.
Hi Jaye, meant to send this note to you but sent it to myself instead. Thanks for the comment, I really like your cover photo as well, they should use it as the default photo for a stint on this site. Very nice! Jet, my gelding is beautiful inside and out. My favourite horse! He will be 11 next spring and have had him since he was a baby. Time sure flies.
