Horse Rescue Ontario & Sanctuary
Well, another successful Pink Ribbon Ride is in the books. This year's ride took place on June 26, 2016, again generously hosted by Morning Star Equestrian Farm in Brantford, Ontario.
A big thanks to all the wonderful sponsors who continue to support the show. Thanks to all the volunteers who came out to help set up prior to the show and tear down after the show. Thanks also to the guys in the food tent. Still the best breakfast sandwich ever!!!!!
Crystal and Amber Ripa are to be congratulated and admired for their commitment to such a great cause, now in it's 10th year.
Crystal Ripa, looking as lovely as ever!!! Congrats on your engagement Crystal.
Pink is what it's all about. Our riders and horses were all decked out!
Our volunteers, where would we be without them?
The silent auction and prize tables are always a big draw.
Spectators watching the action.
It was a hot, dusty day, but that didn't stop our competitors.
Taking a well deserved break between classes.
That's a wrap!
The horse world is like a revolving door. People come, people go, but you know eventually your paths will cross again and when they do it will be a wonderful treat. Such is the case with Cheryl MacLeod and her beautiful horse Roosevelt. We were at the same boarding facility on many occasions, but as it goes in the horse world people move on for many different reasons. I'm so happy we have renewed our friendship. These photographs were taken on a beautiful October evening at M2 Dressage where Cheryl is boarding. As you can see Roosevelt is not the only handsome guy in these photos, Finnegan, Cheryl's dog came along for the session as well.
2015 was another successful year for The Pink Ribbon Ride. Conceived and organized by Amber and Crystal Ripa it is now in its 9th year. The best year to date. The ride was once again hosted by Morning Star Equestrian Farm in Brantford, Ontario. Despite the torrential downpour of rain the day prior to the show, volunteers attended to set up the rings and organize for the show. The day of the show was on and off rain, but despite it all, the competitors turned out, the Judges and volunteers arrived and the day was a huge success. Rain or shine, the show must go on.
Our youngest competitor of the day!
The entry booth was a busy place.
The food tent was also a popular spot. Many thanks to the guys in the food tent. Best breakfast sandwich ever!!!!

The best thing about being involved with horses (other than the horses themselves), is the horse community. I have made so many friendships over the years through and because of horses. Through photography I continue to meet "horse people" and am given the opportunity to get to know them and their horses. Such is the case with Kristy Barber Feaver. This photo session took place at Dream Quest Stables in Smithville, where Kristy boards her 4 year old gelding Rubin. Kristy also has 3 dachshunds named Wendel, Clark, and Ella, who were also part of the session.
