Sante Fe Quarter Horse Colt
I’ve loved horses all of my life and reluctantly moved on from being a crazy horse owner in my mid thirties. I basically stopped riding although occasionally would go to a riding stable just to get my fix of the sights (and smells) of a barn and the horses. When I retired it would be my photography that would bring me back to horses once again.
My personal favourite horse is a Quarter horse and I was beyond ecstatic to arrive at a ranch during one of Tony Stromberg’s New Mexico photography workshops. Tony is considered the number one horse photographer in the world so it was already amazing that I was there and then a quarter horse ranch? Yikes!
This is my favourite shot of the many that were taken. There is just something about this colt that caught my eye. Maybe it is the many shiny coats of the horses milling around him or maybe it is just the idea that it only takes a moment before it passes. Love what photography can capture!
