Splash has more sass then both my kids combined. And that is saying something!

I had the unique opportunity to spend some time with Hailey and her gorgeous retired race horse Splash this past week at the Canada West Ranch in Abbostford BC. I've always had a crush on horses - I mean really, what girl doesn't? - so I jumped at the chance to watch Hailey put Splash through her paces and get a little glimpse into her regular days at the barn. Splash was decidedly NOT sure about me at first, turning away every time I talked to her and steadfastly tolerating my attention. 

After brushing Splash down and saddling her up, Hailey was ready to take her to the ring. Splash clearly knows who her person is - even following Hailey without any prompting. I tucked myself up in a corner and Hailey got to work - challenging splash between cantering and trotting, teaching her to respond to her voice and touch. After a bit we pulled out some basic jumps. It's something that I think is a pretty big challenge for Splash but even though she was skeptical she managed a jump or two successfully!

I was definitely in my element - there was no posing or forced smiles or interactions - I just got to click away in the back ground and watch this simple but powerful scene unfold. Sometimes it can feel like the days are mundane and the duties boring but our lives are made up of this little every day sequences and it's truly my jam to photograph them. The more I do it, the more I want to! So send me all the horses!
