Why an Equine Portrait by West Midlands Equine Portraiture 

Poppy and Pebbles equine portrait session


The Equine portrait is something that many owners have never thought about. For most people, your horse is part of the family, the four legged friend that you visit every day to tend and care for and who looks after you on a ride out. As a result I believe that they deserve better than a quick phone snap. West Midlands Equine Portraiture can make that happen for you.

Families usually have artwork of their members on display. This display of your family is why I recommend printed photographs rather than digital files, which get put in a drawer and forgotten, I’m afraid to say. We offer a great range of ways to display the work that we create for you from your mantlepiece to the wall to books. 

An equine portrait session gives you the opportunity to be photographed with your horse in a way that you don’t normally do on a daily basis. Sessions take place in an area familiar to the horse so that there are no surprises.

How does it work

 a portrait session normally lasts 1- 2 1/2 hours.

You choose a location familiar to your horse so that the horse is comfortable in its surroundings.

Either at the time of booking or shortly before your session we will have a discussion on the location and what you should wear to get the best results.

Things to consider at the planning stage. What are the great points about where your horse lives that we can use?

What is the time of year that the location looks its best. I like to use your local knowledge.

How do you view your clothing style ? Let’s look at that more in the next section.

Usually, 3 changes of clothes are a good look. Bring 4 or 5 varied outfits and we can discuss the best ones to choose for the session.

Are you a fun clothing, smart casual or dress up person or prefer a more laid back Country Style? Try them all at your session. I try and go for a casual, smart and glad rags look in your chosen style and get you to be different for your session to how your friends at the yard see you. Do you want to knock ’em dead with a prom dress, ball-grown or even your wedding dress? For the guys super sharp casual or the full on tux?

A couple of suggestions that you might wish to consider. If you compete for example you might wish to have some photographs of you and your horse in your competition gear. Another option might be if you are doing an outfit in your going out clothes fit in a little time at the end for some shot of yourself dressed up.


Viewing your pictures

Following the session, I will arrange a viewing session with you so that you can pick your favourites and discuss your needs for your order. I prefer to have a face to face look at the images with you. I only use quality companies to provide your products. I want you to be able to trust West Midlands Equine Portraiture and my top of the range suppliers to give you products to be proud of that you will be proud to look through or hang on your wall. 

For sessions involving under 17’s, we do require the presence of a supervising adult for safeguarding purposes as our policy is to never be alone with a young person. As we all know the British weather can be fickle. If the weather isn’t suitable to give you the best experience I will reschedule with you for a better opportunity. I can work in wet weather but it’s no fun for you or your horse when you would rather be in the warm. The week before the session I will arrange a backup date in case we need to use it then we know in advance that we will both be free.



As you can see we put great store in printed product.

Print is archive quality that you can touch and if cared for well lasts a lifetime.
