There are a few things that are worth getting up for so early in the morning, but to me, a horse is one of them. I love horses and used to own and show them a long time ago. I was thrilled to bits when Erin asked me to photograph her gorgeous big horse Riggs. We really lucked out and had a beautiful morning in early May, and that morning sun really brought out the fire red in Riggs’ coat. He is a ham too – most of the pictures had to be from further away, or he would be searching through my pockets (or camera) for some treats!
He is an incredibly beautiful animal and a gentle giant. I really was stuck by how closely bonded they are and hoped to convey that closeness though the pictures we made that morning.
A few of my favs below…
And finally, I leave you with one that really says what Riggs loves to do beyond anything else….
Thanks Erin for inviting me out to photograph your bond – it’s something special and he is an incredible horse :).
