This is me, by me, for me!
Well, I am firstly a mother and secondly a photographer. I live in Shetland, Britain's most northerly outpost.
I have ridden ever since I can remember but got my first pony when I married, had 2 children and was in my thirties.
Now, a decade later, I have *** cough *** "some" Shetland ponies, Icelandic horses and a Welsh Section A.
This is Thordale Shetland Stud, home of the most infamous Shetland pony stallion, Indy Ping-Pong!
In between previously running a very successful riding and trekking school, and then subsequent carriage driving centre, I managed to revisit an old passion - photography.
I specialise in capturing the inner personality of Shetland ponies, as well as the bigger equines I stumble upon.
You can see my work at http://www.thordalephotography.com My definition of a good photograph is one that makes me laugh out loud!
What else? Oh yes, I am recovering from failed spinal surgery. Life can be rather difficult and slow at times but I am trying to occupy my day promoting the Shetland pony in its natural environment.
Hence this blog. I want you to see what I see in these brilliant ponies that never cease to bring a smile to everyone's face.
Oh, and you can follow me on Twitter if you want!
