Profile Information

A Bit About Me and my Horse(s)
Born in rural England, Linda, learned to ride a pony before she could ride a two wheel bicycle, competed at county level shows in England with show ponies and hunters.

Linda knew she wanted to earn her living in the horse industry so she completed the formal training to become a B.H.S.A.I, and went on to train other equine competitors and riders.



She immigrated to Canada from England almost 20 years ago, and felt she would like a change of career path so Linda went back to school to learn the art and science of photography.

With the intention of using her extensive equestrian background and her newly acquired skills, to earn a living photographing horses



This new direction took her to equine events and farms throughout Alberta over the past 20 years she has photographed thousands of horses in all kinds of disciplines and situations.



Linda’s photographic contribution to preserving Alberta’s Equine Heritage was acknowledged by her majesty the Queen of England. This extensive body of work is now housed in the Provincial Archive Museum and is known as “The Horses of Alberta” exhibit.



Linda has been "Watching" horses all her life so putting together this collection of observations and images seemed only natural.

Her intention is to help others appreciate their natural behavior and gain a better understanding of their ways

Hi Linda--I hear you about the cold!! You would love my Far Infrared spa... Warms you all the way through, which is what us Canadians need in the winter time. Too bad you're thousands of miles away, I'd offer you a free treatment. Better book a plane ticket before you get too much colder!

Hi Linda,

My apologies, I remember seeing the list of horse breeds on that link, and totally missed the Canadians!  Maybe it's because the names were highlighted, not the breed.  Amazing pics!
