As a horsewoman I find this subject especially interesting. Follow me and my 35 mm Canon through the horse show arenas, into the barns, working with equestrian drill teams, bonding with colts, taking our horses to the beach and the Pacific ocean. Look into the eyes of the young child as she discovers her first horse, the eyes of the 80-year old lady still raising foals. I've written verses and short stories to tell what each black and white photo says to me.
I have been photographing the western life since the late 1970's. The series on Women and Their Horses was a favorite because of my background with horses. I am now a senior citizen and my life-long love of horses, whether packing mules, showing in western classes, or riding on a equestrian drill team shows I've loved the life. These pictures and verses show the love I have for Women and Their Horses. I have other photo series on the California Cowboy, Ranch Kids, and Western Trails that will come out in the future. Watch for them.
