The first of these projects, The Senior Horse Project, was hands-down one of the […]

When Jenna first contacted me about a horse & rider portrait session with her and her horse, Gazoo, at the gorgeous Redfield Training, in Califon, NJ, she mentioned that she had just graduated from Berkeley! I went through the roof. Living out here in NJ I don’t meet many University of California alums, so YAY […]

Carly and Hercules grew up together – that’s how she describes it. I think it’s a beautiful way to look at their 25 year long relationship. Carly is the trainer at Winward Equestrian, and Hercules is lucky enough to live out his golden years with Carly and her students on a gorgeous farm in Colts […]

As stated on the project’s website, the goal of this project is to raise awareness and support diversity within the […]

Allison and Dino “The Wonder Pony” were a pair I was super excited to connect with. His story is amazing – he and Allison just so happened to find each other at just the right time. Because of that, he’s living his best life in his senior years at Chestnut Hollow Farm in Perkasie, PA. […]

Our next pair in the Senior Horse Project, Rachelle & Polly. These ladies have such an interesting, layered story because it spans multiple generations. Rachelle has raised two of Polly’s babies, Teddy and Jasper, at her farm Ponyz on the Rockz. Rachelle’s hat is sentimental in these images – she had some past pictures of […]

While my Senior Horse Project has been a long time in the making, I can honestly say it’s been one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. This project got its start at the end of 2019! My thought was that I’d be sharing these stories and portraits with you by the end of […]
