Diederik and Muriel du Bois

A couple of Wednesdays ago, I did a quick evening shoot for Sheila Weinrich and Mary Forck with their horses Diederik (“Dee”) and Muriel du Bois (“Muriel”) at Pine Hill Farm. I know both well – Mary is my dressage instructor and after my horse’s career suddenly and unexpectedly ended due to an undetected injury last summer, Sheila and Mary generously allowed me to do an informal “half lease” with Dee and ride/take lessons on him a couple of times a week. Dee recently won both the Region 4 and Midwest Championships in 3rd level, open with Mary – and Mary’s mare Muriel was reserve champion at Intermediare II. So we scheduled this shoot with their ribbons at home after the show, and here are a few images from our session. Sheila and Mary – words can’t express how grateful I am to have the opportunity to ride/learn on a horse as talented as Dee. It’s fun to get to ride the more upper level stuff once again – it’s been entirely too long! In any event – here are the photos!
