Since having horses come into my life in 2017 I have known I wanted to do something… I just could not figure out what that something was.
I considered starting a photography business, but for some reason, that just never got going. I built a website, took some pictures of friends horses but it never felt quite right. I kept feeling like there was more to it than just taking pretty pictures of horses. One day, looking through a bunch of pictures I took of a neighbors ponies I came across this picture:
And I was totally in love with it. I love the smaller details, and I knew that I didn’t want to capture the typical pretty horse images. I wanted to capture the small details, the moments of them just being horses, who they are and not what we want them to be. It was at this pointed I changed my Facebook page name to The Equine Soul. It felt more right to what I was looking for in my photography.
I then registered the domain name… then did nothing. I still couldn’t figure out what I should do with it all. I have things in my heart that I believe to be true about horses, but I felt due to my lack of actual horse experience I had no business writing about them. My opinion on that has since changed.
In February 2018, I met the owner of Den Hele Ekvipage, Helle Knudsen. I talk a bit more about that in the about me post, but I now have a couple of horses in my life and access to a heard of about 24 horse. I am quickly gaining experience, and I think I now know what I want this website to be.
I want to capture the equine soul on camera, both with still image and video, but even more I want to write about my journey with horses. I want to write about what I feel in my heart and the experience I gain from being around them on a regular basis. It is just as much about me and as it is about the horses I encounter.
