Fair Time!

I spent last week photographing at the Delaware County Fair here in my home town of Walton, NY. This fair boasts one of the largest agricultural exhibits and there is always a full day of horse activity going on. From draft horses to team penning to gymkhana and traditional horse show classes it's a real treat for me to have all this available to me in my back yard!
All the photos from the various days' events may be seen at this link. Enjoy!

Cross State Trail Ride

One of the joys of summer is being able to get out on a perfect day and photograph horses and riders enjoying some beautiful trails and the fellowship of other trail riders. Over the years I have found trail riders some of the best horse men and women and always appreciative when they see me on the trail with my camera.

This photo was taken at the recent Cross State Trail Ride in Brookfield, New York. This is an annual event that draws close to 100 riders from all over the Northeast. Photos from this ride may be seen here. If you recognize anybody please feel free to pass along the link as I was not able to make contact with everyone that rode.

I have always enjoyed shooting at the Brookfield trail system and plan to return in October for the Fall Pleasure Ride. It is hard to believe that Fall is just around the corner!

Finger Lakes Fjord Horse Show

I recently photographed the Finger Lakes Fjord Horse Show in Weedsport, New York. These little horses are always a pleasure to photograph, they have so much personality and are incredibly versatile and the owners love showing them off. The costume class was particularly fun and well attended this year.
Check out some of my favorite images from this event here, and if you were an exhibitor and still need access to the complete galleries drop me an email and I will send you the info.
