Shelby is such a sweet, beautiful girl with the biggest heart for animals; especially one horse in particular! It was a gorgeous fall day for our equine picture session and I am soo happy I was able to capture these images for Shelby.
A bit more about Shelby & Olivia’s story:
” I’ve owned Discreetly Sparkled ( Olivia ) for 8 years now; she is a 11yr old solid paint mare. She is definitely an alpha mare and very much a diva! She is very confident and independent. I found a quote ages ago that describes her exactly!
“The kind of horse who doesn’t go for indecision, the kind of horse who doesn’t apologize and, who isn’t afraid to be herself”
Olivia loves to jump! Especially cross country jumps! She’s amazing with little kids, and beginner riders but if you think you know what your doing but don’t she won’t tolerate you for long. She excels with experienced riders. She’s very smart”
“Unfortunately at the beginning of spring I only got one ride on her before she got into an accident that forced me to retire her. She ended up breaking four vertebrae in her back. Her spine is no longer straight where the bones have settled so a saddle will not be an option anymore. The vet was surprised to see how relentless and strong willed she was. She has ended up recovering remarkably well! She full out gallops around and her extended trot is as beautiful as ever.”
