I too have been wanting to do a horse themed shoot for a couple of years, and it still hasn't happened. I'm determined that it will take place one day. Good luck with your shoot - hope you manage to get something sorted.

I still haven't found a local'ish model who owns a horse or could help out with finding one close enough to me. thanks to all who have tried to help so far. still looking guys.




Two of us have pointed you in the direction of the lovely Becky Blissett who is a wonderful model and owns horses...she lives about 64 miles away from you (Grimsby)...surely that's not too far to travel for the right model?

I often travel further than that, for the right photographer frown

Step One) Shoot some horses standing in a field.
Step Two) Shoot some models in a studio, posing on a saddle.
Step Three) Photoshop the images together. Add reigns, muzzle flash coming out of those muskets, dramatic sky, etc. Job done!

Not easy, but compared to running around a field with a step ladder, trying to get the horse to stand in the right position, while you move your lights about...

Having worked with Becky (but not for a shoot with her and her horses), I can certainly vouch for her versatility, professionalism and modelling skills as well as being a thoroughly nice person. In my case, I'd love to work with Becky again, but she wouldn't be the right model for the horse shoot that I want to do.

The person who started this thread may also have a particular style of model that he would like to use for the shoot.

Guys he's not looking for a model to shoot, in the his opening post he says:

"...and dont want the models involved to go off the boil so to speak"

So he already has the models - he's just looking for someone with a horse he can use.

And I think you'll find he won't be traveling very far either, again from his opening post:

"...not sure if the models will be as enthusiastic about travelling"

So, its more a case of 'You can take a horse to a model but you cant make it pose'

Have many horses said 'neigh'

I guess an important question 'is it hayed'

Maybe someone from here could help Leigh the OP, then...

They know the horsey world inside out in Yorkshire, or so it would appear from their interesting website...


Worth a go contacting them...

Ironically, I'm staying at a Horse Stud Farm next week, so will ask the owner if she has any connections in Yorkshire that could poss' help frown

Good luck finding girls who will allow other models to use their horses!

cant answer all the posts at once but just want to say. firstly travel is not a problem for me but doubt very much the involved models will be as enthusiastic. secondly becky does look beautiful and is a superb model but just not right for whats needed. so it has to be the selected models.
I did think about photoshop but im not good enough to pull off such a complex bit of work.
just want to say thank you to all who have offered very helpful comments and suggestions they are very much appreciated.
I will be contacting rideyorkshire in the morning thank you so much guys.
