Well hello there!

killyennphotography:

I don’t like to post too much text on my photoblog, but I do have some important stuff to say so here it goes:

1) Photos may of course be reblogged but definitely not reposted.
2) Photos may be used outside of Tumblr for non-commercial purposes, as long as you leave the photo including…

I’d like to make this clear on this photography blog as well.

Anonymous asked: Any ideas to stop a horse from putting his tongue over the bit? Tried all different types of bits, and I have no idea what to do.. Want to go out winning competitions again but its becoming a habit of his':(

Oh no! I’ve never had a situation like that, so I’ll start by asking if any of my followers can help this lovely anon out? Part of me is thinking about the temperature of the bit; does he do it in the summer too? But because it’s fairly cold, it might be that the bit is too cold and he’s uncomfortable. To fix that, even something like wrapping it in a cooler (the horse blanket haha) and putting it in a tack trunk might work ( you may even bring the bit home to keep it warm overnight). I can’t say I have other advice on this topic though, I’m sorry!

Again, do any of my followers have ideas?

Anonymous asked: Growing up I was always told that when a horse puts his tongue over the bit, he's trying to relieve pain. When a bit is being pulled back to far, for too long, the joint will be putting pressure on the top of their mouth, causing a lot of pain. Typically they will start to put their tongue there to relieve the pain, switching from having their tongue there and having it just on their mouth to even out the pain so it's not directed onto just their mouth or tongue.

(For the anon) /\/\/\/\/\/\ Thank you for sharing!

Anonymous asked: Do you just walk around the barn taking pictures? How long does it usually take you? Are the people at your barn cool about you taking pictures of their horse? I'm a photographer but I don't know how to go about taking pictures at the barn.

Yep! I usually takes me about an hour - it depends how much free time I have. The people at my barn are totally fine with it; I got some weird looks at first but then they realized I could get some cool shots and started asking me to take pictures at their lesson or email them some cute photos of them and their horse! I would suggest starting by taking pictures of a horse in the paddock (if you’re unsure if they like the camera, maybe ask your barn manager/staff) to figure out the right settings on your camera to take quality photos. Then you can approach a horse/rider pair and ask if it’s alright to take some photos of them. But go for it, it’s great!
