Every year I get to visit at the Washington State Reining Horse Association's Classic show with Joel Gleason of Avila's Pro Shop. Joel sold me my black and white straw hat that I get so many compliments on. His knowledge of tack and tack makers is out of this world. Those getting into the Ranch Riding events really need to look him up. You can find them online at https://avilaproshop.com/
It's always great to catch up with Joel. I enjoy listening and learning of great horses and greater horsemen of now and then. Joel has been a big supporter of my artwork and my photography. He raised and showed halter horses just like I have. I swear us halter people are a dying breed. One of these days I'm going to get a chance to visit him and his beloved wife in Montana. I can't wait!
Being at a show though also gives me a little time to play around with my camera for myself. You can check out the few pictures I did on my online store at https://kirstenhammerfineartphotography.pixieset.com/wrhashowjune2018/
