Did you know that the horse family originated
more than 65 million years ago?
The first horse was not much bigger than a fox.
Today's domestic horse belongs to a family that includes three species of zebras and two species of asses. Only the Mongolian wild horse--or Przewalski's horse--still exists totally as a wild animal, and it is an endangered species. Horses were domesticated by humans more than 6,000 years ago, and now there are more than 200 different breeds of domestic horses.
I've always enjoyed being around horses. As a professional photographer, I also enjoy taking pictures of horses. My cameras have captured all kinds of events, from local saddle club shows to USET dressage. As a freelance stringer, I shot rodeos and had my photos and articles published regularly in Pro Rodeo World magazine.
These pages have a few of the photos I've taken over the years, and I added some information, too. Learn more about these amazing animals and view photos of them at work and at play.
