The illustrations used here by permission, are by a wonderful artist named Dennis Porter from Dayton, Ohio. He has an amazing knack for drawing humor. I give him a few rough ideas of my vision of the illustration and he interprets my vague idea into an amazingly appropriate drawing, generally in just a few minutes. He never ceases to amaze and delight both myself, my publishers and editors, and from what I hear on the grapevine, my readers (all two of you, and you know who you are)! He and his other less horsey work may be found at www.porterart.com. Pay him a visit and enjoy!
For those of you who want to see some of my equine photographic endeavors, visit www.equimage.com for lots of equine and eventing photography.
All of these little stories have been previously published in Eventing USAmagazine, the official publication of the United States Eventing Association. Pay them a visit if you'd like to learn more about the sport of Combined Training and Eventing.
Ping and I hope you enjoy the ride!
