Today was a beautiful day for the KWPN Keuring at Black Star Sport Horses. So many beautiful horses, so athletic, so majestic! They really know their job and turn up the energy for the show. It was a new experience for me to watch this event. I haven't had the experience with jumps since majority of the time I shoot portraits and dressage pictures. I was still able to get the shots needed! I was able to meet really nice people and got to know more about the the KWPN. Thank you to Lisa Blackmon and the Black Star Sport Horses for allowing me to come photograph this show. Please click HERE to view the photos.

This weekend I photographed the Dallas Dressage Club show Lemonade Daze at the Henderson County Fair Park in Athens, Texas. For it to be in the middle of hot August, it has been a nice weekend. Nice cloudy day, maybe a bit humid but well worth a nice horse show in this facility. This was my first big show to photograph and it was a success. It was a huge success and so many beautiful rides and horses to capture. If you are wanting to view the photos, I have them listed HERE.

Dover Saddlery had a photo contest running for nearly a month and I submitted quite a few pictures. There were different categories like Junior/Pony rider, Artistic, Dressage, Jumping, Eventing, Dover Model, Black&White, etc. They had a community vote and voting within the Dover company. It was supposed to be announced this past Friday (5th) but I guess they were running behind to publish it. I was so stoked about the AMHA Calendar that I was constantly refreshing and checking for updates. I happened to refresh the page and noticed it was published. I scrolled and scrolled and figured none of my pictures were selected. I believe there were over 450 pages of pictures. Then I saw this and I am still screaming my head off! I can't believe I got picked again! I am so overwhelmed and so full of excitement that things are really going down a good path! This picture was taken with my nephew, Rico, and Skip, who is a buckskin miniature horse gelding owned by Rachel Skaggs <3!
I got an email from 2 people suggesting I should send in my photographs to the AMHA Calendar. I really thought about it and said might as well! I emailed the main person in contact asking if I could just submit my pictures on my proof site since I realized I work with 16 beautiful Morgans. I didn't want to spam tons of emails! After a few weeks, I didn't hear back from them until today! I got an email asking for this photo to be in the calendar!!! I am so thrilled and shocked that I have something officially published for others to see. Now all I have to wait for is back from Dover Saddlery photo contest today. I am excited!
