Ella McCullough...summer shoot

Trying to keep my mind off recent tragedies is often times difficult, but life moves on and I can only get back to work to distract myself. Luckily I have some beautiful subjects that I've photographed to go through...

Up on the webpage Love Of Horses is the beautiful Ella McCullough. I met Ella when she was hardly as tall as my elbow. She leased our great show mare, Dot Your Eye. "Ivy" taught Ella a lot about riding and it was great to see Ella learn how to ride her. Old show mares know all the tricks on how to get away with EVERYTHING and "Ivy" is the smartest mare I've ever had.

Ella has a new partner, Coda, are continuing their journey and learning how to work together. I've seen the two of them come so far together. It's so refreshing to see that bloom of the new beginnings...
