Soul Horse Creative is a culmination of the passionate pursuits of a horse-crazed little girl turned horse-crazed adult. With almost a quarter century of passionate dedication to the equine industry, our founder has the experience and soul of a true equestrian. She believes that her love for the sport and the equine athletes behind it gives her a unique perspective and valuable insight to what other equestrians value above all... Their soul horses.
With a mind for words and an eye for images, we hope to bring the two together in a collaboration that proves stronger than the sum of its two parts. "Fairytails" brings this concept to life by telling the intimate story of a horse and its person in a way that conveys emotion and authenticity.
By capturing moments that are specific and personal, yet relatable, it is our goal to provide you with a beautiful way to honor your soul horse and to share your very own dream come true with friends and relatives for years to come.
Well, as a child, I always liked stories.
I liked to read them, I liked writing them, I liked listening to them.
As an only child, I even liked acting them out in the woods behind my house.
I was creative, and I was intrigued by them, but between riding lessons and horse shows, story telling became an idle passion.
As I continued to grow and thrive, I began to nurture this gift and found it an endless source of inspiration and wonder.
Some of my earliest memories are of stories and books.
Picture books satiated me, but I preferred classic fairytales and epic myths.
The deeper, more vivid and complex, the better.
I understood early on that there was an importance in the details.
I've also always been mesmerized by photographs.
Their ability to capture a moment, a feeling, a relationship. The history they remind us of so vividly.
But also, I realized something about their importance.
Though maybe unable to discuss it then, I could feel how important they are to us.
Stories and images. Important to us as individuals, as a culture, and as human beings.
Something timeless and in a way universal. Emotion, memory, hope, identity.
There are some things about our world that can't be explained in picture or word alone...
Somehow I always knew there was a need for both to work together to even come close.
For them to play off one another.
Like the beauty of a single instrument enhanced by the sound of the rest of the orchestra.
So... with the equal passion and importance I place on our equine companions, I felt it only right to merge the two.
