Stevie the horse….
I’m always up for trying something new. So when I was asked if I could take some photos of a horse by a friend of Justine’s, I was definitely up for it. That’s when I met the cheeky, mischievous, Stevie the horse.
These photos are from a quick visit to a dressage meet here in Canberra, just to get a sense of what all this horse stuff was about. It was an opportunity to meet Stevie and his owner/rider, Jenny, and learn a few things about horses. Like not standing too close the back of them. Fortunately I didn’t learn that one the hard way as I hear they can kick with quite some force. Looking at how muscular they are too, I don’t doubt it. Would you want 800kg of horse kicking you in man parts? I don’t think so.
This coming weekend we are going to get a few photos of Stevie on his home turf. I’m thinking about approaching the shoot like a ‘high fashion’ shoot with Stevie as the model, and see what we get. Apparently he will be fine with the flashing and blinking lights of my strobes, but we’ll see. I don’t want to upset him, but I think it would be quite cool.
But for now, here’s a few photos of him at the dressage event.
