Lauren + Mickey Horse and Rider Session in Lebanon Kentucky at The Family Farm | Kentucky Equine Portrait Photographer Rebecca Beatty

I haven’t got to work with many saddlebreds, so when Lauren booked a model call session with me and wanted to do the shoot with her saddlebred Mickey! This is a horse that was full of character! Between smiling for me, keeping his ears perked up, and not to mention, how stinkin’ cute he was with Lauren.

And don’t even get me started about Mickey and some water! Lauren had told me he loved it but I didn’t believe her when she said loved. I thought, you know, he just liked to dip his hooves in the water.


This horse LOVED swimming.

Check out the gif I made to show Mickey’s excitement over water below!
