Bit & Bridle Magazine: Photo of the Week Winner 10/05/09

Last year, I photographed a “herd” of ladies at the River Valley Ranch in Tucson, AZ with their horses. One of the young ladies was Rachel Econ with her best friend, a Paint named Scotch. One of the resulting images, the one above, really pulled at my heart strings as it showed the obvious love of a horse and his girl. When Rachel published her first book, Passage to Stomio, (at 13 years old) this image was used for her bio photograph on the book’s back cover. I entered the image in Bit & Bridle Magazine’s Photo of the Week contest last week and was notified today that it won with 71% of the votes at close to 300 votes.
