If you've ever had the opportunity to visit the stunning grounds of Riveredge, you know firsthand just how breathtaking the entire property is! From barn to indoor to paddocks - the whole center is one hidden gem after another. But after having spent a few years wandering the grounds, I think Fall is when this Chesapeake City dressage facility is at its most gorgeous. So naturally I was thrilled to photograph the ladies of Yellow Wood Dressage, LLC - head trainer Ashley Madison and assistant trainer Allie Wilcox.
I met Ashley and Allie nearly two years ago when I sent my heart horse Riptide to gain a better education with the Yellow Wood team. The positive training program at Yellow Wood is intuitive, attentive, and full of variety. I was thrilled with the job they did with Rip introducing him to a more balanced carriage and happier attitude. I really couldn't recommend their program more. Plus, they are just really kind people!
I'm so thrilled to be able to capture these two ladies in their element amid Riveredge in full Fall display. Enjoy a sampling of their session below!
