Susan and Chance


The vast majority of the time, I photograph stock horse breeds, mainly Paints and Quarter Horses, mainly in Western tack. On the rare occasion that I get to photograph a different breed or sport—it’s a special day. So when I showed up at Susan’s barn and saw her grooming this majestic unicorn-slash-rescue horse named Chance in dressage gear, I was positively gleeful. I don’t think I’ve ever photographed a draft-type cross, much less one as flashy as Chance. These were shot in the heat of the summer, but they give such a nice fall vibe that I thought they’d be nice to share now. I had so much fun photographing Susan and Chance, and I hope you enjoy these photos.
