To view galleries of recent competitions, please visit my image hosting site:
Performance Horse Photography Galleries 
All images found here on the website and on Facebook have been cropped, have special editing and have been uploaded at very low resolution to make uploading to view quicker.  Images found in the galleries will be edited upon ordering.  As a special note, galleries are only kept "live" for 6 months. 
All images are available for purchase either via the galleries or by emailing me directly.  Images can be purchased as metallic, metal, canvas or wood prints, diamond paintings, on tote bags, wall decals, table runners, shower curtains, blankets and more.  For more information on special printing email me at:
