Purebred Arabian horses are incredibly striking with their identifiable chiseled head, dished face, long arching neck, and high tail. Their overall beauty is matched by their energy, intelligence, nobility, and grace. Each February, thousands of Arabians and their riders gather at Westworld to compete for national championships in Western Horsemanship, Reining, English and Western Dressage, Pleasure Driving, Native Arabian Costume, Herd Work, Cutting and more.
Photography instructor and avid horse lover will work in-field with participants to hone their skills in photographing in low-light arenas, motion and shutter speed, working with exposure compensation and overall composition techniques. She will share her knowledge of equine photography and assist you in bringing home beautiful Arabian horse images.
