The role of the schoolmaster is so influential in the lives of countless riders. Performing an often thankless job—paid simply in kisses and pets from tiny hands—lesson horses transform lives by instilling a lifelong love of horses in young riders' hearts and fostering those invaluable qualities of confidence, courage and caring. 

Through the Schoolmaster Project, I want to highlight and celebrate these patient teachers, as well as create precious keepsakes for those who love them.

In order to honor these horses, I need your help. Do you know of an incredible lesson horse in the North Texas area? Complete the form below and tell me about your favorite schoolmaster! 

Selected nominees will receive a complementary mini portrait session and have their stories featured on my blog.
