Special Olympics

I had such a great time at Special Olympics in Perry, Georgia this year.  I’ve been wanting to do it for the past 3 years but havent had the chance.  One of the most exciting things for me was being able to be a photographer for the weekend! I’m usually the person running the video camera so switching to a still camera was pretty exciting.  It took me a little while to get used to a new camera and shooting with no flash (they didn’t want any horses to get spooked) but I got a hang of it pretty quickly.  I was one of two event photographers for the weekend.   I have been working as a videographer for reining horse shows for over 3 years. I learned a bunch of little things about horses this weekend that I know will make me a hundred times more comfortable around horses at my regular shows.  I didn’t grow up around horses as most of the people I work with have.  This has all been a new and exciting experience for me. Every horse show I learn something new about horses, or scoring, or even just about the people who decided to make horse riding and training their living.

 

Here are some snapshots from the special olympics trip.  :)
