A Rugged Old World for Chrome's inaugural issue

The American Paint Horse Association has made some exciting changes in the last year. One of which was a re-energizing of the member experience. A new publication was created just for members called Chrome offering a tantalizing blend of lifestyle articles for the Paint Horse enthusiast. I am proud to contribute to this beautiful publication, and I am excited to share with you some of my articles!

This article was spun out of my visit to Florida to take photos for APHA. We couldn't visit Ocala without stopping at Fox Grove Farm, the home of the late Rugged Lark and now Rugged Painted Lark. Lynn Palm and her husband Cyril Pittion-Rossillon have a beautiful French Country style home. I've been a fan of Rugged Lark since I was little--I still have his Breyer model horse. And come to find out, Cyril trained at Le Cadre Noir in Saumur, France--a place I visited while studying abroad in the area. The couple was so gracious to welcome me into their home for a tour. It was an interesting visit, and I love how the profile turned out. Check it out HERE and below.
