First Horse Show

It was my first horse show of 2015 at Topline Show Park in Salmon Arm,  it was also the first horse show I have photographed there in over a year! So it was fitting that I start a new personal photography project that documented a riders first horse show at Topline.  What I decided to do was photograph them either in or out of the ring and ask the a few questions.  I think this is a really important first and I plan on making it fun!

So the first duo from the Topline Stables Spring Fling  is Heather and Gov!

1. Favorite saying or quote?

When referring to gov I always say, Man I love that horse!

2. Most memorable moment from your first show at Topline Stables.

Warming up in the dressage ring with all the young riders and Jamie 
running down to coach me!

3. If you could use one word to describe your horse what would that be?

Pig Pen!

Thank you Heather for giving me the opportunity to photograph you and to share your first horse show at Topline!

Lindsay Horvath - As both a photographer and as someone who grew up with horses (and who has been scouring the internet for a gift idea all day) I’m thinking its kismet that I stumbled upon your site today. Several months ago my family lost the horse I grew up riding, 32 year old Tinker, a registered Pinto who was a bay and thus the namesake of our farm, Pinto Bay Farm. She was really my mom’s horse, the first horse our family owned and the one who made her childhood dream come true. The person who is impossible to find a Christmas gift for who I was searching for today? My mom. I would love, love, LOVE to win a copy of this book to give to her. What a wonderful project.

Sweet, Crazy Conversations {one frame} ☞ Family

“Sweet, crazy conversations full of half sentences, daydreams and misunderstandings more thrilling than understanding could ever be.”  – Toni Morrison

A whirlwind of joyful chaos. That pretty much sums up how I’ve been feeling these last few weeks.So when I drove out to photograph a family on Monday, it was the break I needed from living behind a computer for weeks.  Breath. Laugh. Relax. Renew.

If you’re a family who is looking for something different in a family photographer please drop me a line.
