In the early to late 2000's, while living in Fallbrook, CA, I ran a horse riding school for kids, and kids at heart, called Kids Horsin' Around. At the peak of my my riding career, I had 16 horses of various sizes on my property. Plus a huge assortment of critters (goats, parrots, rabbits, chickens, pot belly pigs, mini donkeys, tortoises, cat and dogs) and offered traveling pet zoos, pony parties, Girl Scout badges, summer camps and more. It was a special time and I love each and every one of my fur and feathered babies!
I also did professional photography for so many local horse shows such as ACTHA (American Competitive Trail Horse Association, now defunct), SCPHA (Southern California Professional Horse Show Associate); VCV (Valley Center Vaqueros), FSS (Fallbrook Silver Spurs) and a few others. So maybe it's been awhile since you competed in one of those organization. Maybe your horse has passed on, you've gotten older and no longer riding, but you can still re-live the fun and excitement that you shared with your partner and friends. Check for your photos here!
