Before photography, horses were my first hobby love. It brings me so much joy when I am able to combine the love of both and create Kentucky Equestrian Portraits. I started riding when I was ten years old. My Mommaw took me to my first riding lesson and I remember her saying, “Now I really want you to ride western, but I found this farm and they only offer hunter jumper. I still think it’ll be a great place for you. Let’s go check it out and get you riding.”

 

And it really was. I met my best of friends there. And if I didn’t meet them at that barn, I met them through the sport. I learned to take care of an animal that truly relied on me. I worked hard, sweated a lot and found something that set my soul on fire. I don’t think it’s possible to explain in words how much horses mean to me.

 

But here I am now, 15+ years later. Nothing has really changed. Horses still make my heart happy. I could spend all day at the barn and never get bored. And that’s typically where you’ll find me most Sundays. You won’t find me competing much anymore, but I am just as happy riding at home, finishing daily chores or just watching Twilight graze down the driveway.

 

So you can imagine how I feel when I am able to combine my love for horses with my love of photography. Jennifer reached out to schedule photos for their daughter and sweet pony, Strawberry. They had an incredible show season together last year. And before she handed Strawberry’s reins to another young rider, Addison wanted to document all of their success together.

 

I couldn’t say yes fast enough. Kentucky Equestrian Portraits will always be a favorite. So I hope you also enjoy photos from our day.

 

And if you are interested in scheduling a session for you and your horse or pony, send me a message at hello@triciamichael.com. Spring and warm weather will be here soon!
