I was the official photographer for this year’s Bourbon County Fair Saddle Horse Show. In a way it felt like coming home. My current equestrian and equestrian photography pursuits revolve around eventing, but I spent most of my teens and twenties riding saddle seat.
I’d like to do more of these types of shows but I think I need to invest in lighting (and also learn how to set it up and use it in a non-horse-spooking manner) because those Saddlebred people ride way past sundown. That does mean these shows span the golden hour, though, which is fun,
