I am thankful for the faculties that have allowed me to visit and photograph their horses and surroundings. Some give me free rein to go where I chose. I have been given small tours or large detailed tours by owners and employees. One thing for certain is they are all love their horses and take pride in the facilities in which they are associated with

Most of the fair is supported by local donors, their help keeps entry fees affordable, provides belt buckles, scholarships, buys auction projects and much more. So if you have a county fair, please make a donation and support your local youth and employers I recommend hiring someone that was involved in this time of competition. They already have all the right qualities!

If you ever pass through Dickens Texas, know that there are some very friendly and good heart residents there as the not so good-hearted left town. I do like the saying "Pay It Forward" and need more of it in life.
I did take some photos on my trip. The ones above are taken a rest area/historical marking west of Guthrie. In the past there has been broodmares from the 6666 ranch getting water. Wasn't as lucky on this day. The photo with the brands was taken with my cell phone, was pretty dull so did some editing to brighten it up and to remove the trash on the ground, but I had to share.

If you are like me your dog or dogs in my case are part of the family, so why capture memories of you beloved pet in photographs. To make the most out of your time in front of the camera, be prepared. In most cases you will want you dog clean and well groomed, do this before your photo session begins. If you want action shots this may not be as crucial as a portrait type session.
When finding a photographer for you dog, be sure they have some experience around dogs. Non-fans of dogs wouldn't be your best bet to hire.
If your dog doesn't know a few basic commands like sit and stay, start working on it a few weeks before your session. Training most dogs basic commands doesn't take much time and it will make the session much less stressful for you, your dog and your photographer.
Bring your dogs favorite treat and toy to help get a good expression on your dogs face. Sometimes a brand new toy helps. Also bring some water and a bowl for your dog. Some dogs may be afraid of the noises and flashes of a camera, so acclimated before you session. Let your photographer know if your pet is fearful of anything. If the photographer doesn't have an assistant, have another family member or someone else your dog is familiar with to assit.
Choosing your location is very important. Safety for your dog is the most important thing to consider, not to close to roads or other dangerous places for dogs. Consider the coloring of your dog so you dog stands out and doesn't blend into the background.
Think of the time of year and climate. If your session in the summer consider the early morning so your dogs tongue isn't hanging out the whole time and doesn't become overheated if doing action shots.
If your dog is part of the family and your life include them your personal portraits!

I had some great models that were both excellent riders. Thanks to Rachel & KC for allowing me to use them as my Guinea Pigs and were very willing to do whatever I ask. Of course on my way home I kept thinking of poses I should of had them do. They had to deal with the wind, bright sun and fresh horse. It wasn't too cold, but I had a jacket on and they were in spaghetti strap gowns. I also want thank Hixon Show Horses for allow us to us their facility. Some of you may recognize the large un-finished house in the back ground of some of the photos that has been a landmark in Sanger, Texas for many years (decades).

Trash The Dress is not limited to those with horses. If you are into rock climbing, try it at your favorite spot. If you are into working out, to a shoot at your favorite gym. Whatever your sport, career or hobby is; work it in the photo shoot and show the real you.
It is recommended that you do this type of shoot after your event.

I plan on doing a photo book of the horses/ ranches of Denton County. Haven’t figured which direction I am going yet on were the strongest emphasizes will be: either foals, stallions, faculities or a combination. As you know Denton County has largest horse population in Texas and one of the largest in the country. There have been several books of this kind in the Lexington, Kentucky and Ocala, Florida areas, but none in Denton County that I know of. I have always felt that Denton County has not promoted the large equine industry as the previous listed areas have and hope this book will help. The passing of the recent Texas Incentive Fund is another reason to promote this area. I want to include several different breeds and disciplines to show the diversity of horses that is in Denton County.
If you know of a faculity that would allow me to come take some photos please pass this along. What I am wanting is to occasionally do photos of their horses and facility. This is at no cost to them. I will never show up unannounced and will contact them at least 24 hours ahead of time. I will not disturb daily activities. I may ask a few questions but this can usually be done my e-mail and answered on their own time. All photos will become property of Terri Cage Photography, but they will have the option to approve the photos I wish to use for publishing. I will provide them with 10 low resolution photos for their use. I do ask that if used, that they include a photo credit and link to my web-site. Most photos will also be listed on an on-line gallery for their viewing. I plan to start photos mid-February through May and may visit 1 to 3 times, unless it snows again, then I will want to come out then. Time of days I would be there are early to mid morning or a few hours before sunset. The facility with a little background and details will also be mentioned in the book.
