To place your horse’s need for you to let him leave his failing body above your need to keep him with you - that - is the greatest and purest love. - Cynthia Garrett.
Some of you may remember photos I posted of this lady and her horse in 2021. She commented on my Chanctonbury Bride shoot expressing her wish to have had a similar shoot of her and her horse.
After learning her boy was due to be put to sleep I offered to visit her at her yard for a free shoot. Unfortunately she was no longer able to ride him but she put on her wedding dress and I got some lovely shots of them together at the bottom of a Footpath just outside her yard.
To be able to witness the genuine and heartfelt emotion between a lady and her horse and to be in the position to be able to create some special lasting memories for her before she had to say goodbye made it easily the best shoot I have done.
For this reason I have decided to offer more free shoots over the year for those with veteran equines.
All you need to do is look out on my Facebook page for posts that I will create periodically asking you to tell me you and your horses story and why you think you and your horse should be the recipients.
I have decided that this offer needs a title to make it easily distinguishable, so I am naming the offer 'Blues Legacy' after this horse.
