While I was down in Red Deer last weekend exhibiting at The Mane Event’s Trade Expo, I was asked to step in to photograph Thursday evening’s Vantage Trailer Sales Pro Am Competition! It was HOOT to watch (and shoot) as amateur youth riders were paired up with world-class professional trainers to race a complex obstacle course filled with poles, boxes, flags, pool noodles and – the worst – kiddie pools! The pros had a blast blazing through the course on unfamiliar horses and the youth riders stole the show with their incredible skill and fierce bravery. Congrats to the the amazing winning team: Emmi – Marshmallow – Scott Purdum! Huge thanks to the folks at Xtreme Wild Rose for inviting me to be in on the action, it was so much fun!!
