A couple of weeks ago I wrote about how Joanne and I got the opportunity to do a photography workshop (North Texas Equine Photography Workshop) led by Terri Cage (Part 1 and Part 2 in case you missed it). Terri Cage is a phenomenal equine photographer, and although it was a lot of working getting to the shoot (including a 3 AM wake up call!), I knew the images would be worth it. Guys, I wasn’t wrong.

We had hoped to get some jumping shots, but unfortunately it had rained too much in the days before and I didn’t feel that the grass footing would hold up to more aggressive jumping. Terri did manage to snag the above shot of us testing it out over a tiny warm-up jump though. I LOVE Rio’s dapples in it, even if I am committing the CARDINAL SIN of looking down #sorryimnotperfect.
Although I think the photos turned out AWESOME I also can’t help but giggle at Rio’s “mare mouth” that he is making in them. If y’all read my other posts, you’ll remember that he was SUPER ANXIOUS during the whole shoot and would not chill out. Seriously, would not. He chomped his bit the ENTIRE shoot, and basically spent the whole time spinning circles around me. I was muy careful not to get stepped in when wearing ballet flats LOL.
Also, I am a solid 6 ft tall. Keep that in mind when you see the two of us standing next to each other. Unclear how tall Rio is these days, but I’m also not sure I wanna know!!
One more for the road- this photo is by one of the workshop attendees, Chelsea Short Photography. I think she did great and I love it!
