Horseshoe Park and Equestrian Centre - Queen Creek, Arizona
I headed out to the fourth day of the Shamrock Show hosted by the Southern Arizona Quarter Horse Association. The five day event is being held in Queen Creek, Arizona at Horseshoe Park and Equestrian Centre. I don't completely understand all the different events that are going on but I am slowly learning. I've been photographing at the arena for a couple months now and I love capturing the calf roping and especially the cowboy mounted shooting events. Mostly I just love to photograph the emotion of the riders and catch the different personalities of their beautiful horses. Today was especially cool, as many people had their dogs with them as well. Being a huge dog lover, I might have to bring mine out next time. I think they might get a kick out of all the excitement and the towering horses. Always a great time in the QC!
The final day of the big event is happening all day tomorrow. If you love horses, head on out to the arena and watch some great riding. Until then, enjoy some of the photos I captured today.
