One of the things I enjoy so much about my job is the fact that I get to experience so many different facets of the horse world. It is amazing to me the range of breeds and disciplines within the horse kingdom, from the smallest minis to the biggest, most powerful draft horses, from cowboys to dressage riders: I love seeing and photographing them all. The variety and occasional new discovery makes my job always interesting!
Just recently I got to meet my first Icelandic horses up close, and what a treat these sturdy little horses are to be around. The owners just love them and although I have not ridden for a while I may just have to climb on board and experience the ride for myself. This cutie is an Icelandic living at Blasted Rock Farm in Bristol, New York. See the images from my visit here, you will also see a very unique Icelandic mule! I also had the chance to meet some Icelandics that live close by, see those images here. Some day I will make it to Iceland to see it for myself but in the mean time this is a great virtual riding tour to see just how smooth these guys are!
I have created a photo needs list and am looking for horse owners to collaborate with me, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you a list of what I am looking for.
