About This Site

Here is how to find your photos for each show.

ENGLISH/WESTERN/TRAIL: All you need to do is click on the "Search" button on the left hand side of the page. You may have to scroll down some, but there will be a search box.  Type in your number from the show and click on the magnifying glass symbol.  If there are photos of you, the computer will show thumbnails of them (you may have to scroll down to see them). You can click on just the ones you want to see larger, or click on the first one to be able to scroll through all of them at full size..  

If your number doesn't come up, email me to see if there are photos of you. My email is Redmiata_fun@yahoo.com.  If you let me know, I'll look harder for you at the next one.

May Show

1. Several people appear to have ridden I'm a Tobi Hobo. I didn't get all your numbers, so everyone is under number 153.

2. I didn't get all the English numbers so look under "ENN" to see if you are there. For the Western numbers I didn't get. use "WNN".

June Show

1. I didn't get all the Western numbers, so look under "WNN 2"

July Show

If you can't find your number from this show, try ENN3 for English and WN3 for Western. You will likely get all shows no number photos, but that isn't a lot.

BARRELS/POLES:  Start by clicking on "SEARCH" on the left hand side of the page. You may have to scroll down a bit to find the box to enter your information. Put your horse's name in and click on the magnifying glass symbol or hit enter.  Scroll down to see you photos in Thumbnail form. Clicking on a thumbnail opens it. 

6/29/16 Barrels

I think I matched up all the "Open" riders with their photos.  So, if you were in the open division, all of your pictures (Open, Youth and Seniors) are under your horse name, so search for that.  If you only rode in the youth division, the riders and horses didn't match up, so search "Youth" and look for yourself. There are only about 88 photos, so it shouldn't take long.

7-13-16 Barrels

I think I matched all the riders/horses to the photos for the Open and Juniors, so search using the name of your horse. Because of how the search function works, you will get your photos from 2 weeks ago and the new ones all together if I previously used your horse name. Seniors, I am sorry but it was just too dark to get good quality photos of your runs

7/6/2016 Poles

I organized these by the color of your horse. So you will have to look through a batch of photos to find if you are there, but there aren't that many for each color: Bay, Black (use BLK to search); Buckskin, Chestnut, Grey White, Paint Pinto,  Palomino, Other (includes colors I wasn't sure of because of the light). 

DRESSAGE: Click on "Search" in the menu on the left. Put your show number in the search box and click on the magnifying glass. You may have to scroll down to see the thumbnails of your photos. If you click on the first one, you can then go through them one by one at a large size on the screen.

GAMES:Your photos are by game: Half 8 (search "Half 8"); International  Flag (search "I F"); Two Barrel Poles (search "2 Barrels"), Ball and Cone (Search "B&C");  Quadrangle (I divided this into seniors and juniors, so if older than intermediate search for "Quad S", otherwise use "Quad J".

For the September Show the Games were Figure 8 (Figure 8), Poles (Poles), Speed Barrels (Speed) and Stake Race (Stakes).




I'm Jan.

This page serves several purposes and you will find many types of images here. I have been a photographer on and off for 35 years and continue to shoot. I have hard drives full of photos, many of horses as they are a particularly favorite subject but many of other animals, water, Seattle and its environns, and much else. Here are some of things I use this page for.

The Hollywood Hill Saddle Club Photos

I am also an experienced rider, both Huntseat and Dressage. These two excitements came together in 2009 at the Hollywood Hill Saddle Club (HHSC) in Woodinville, WA. The club is the caretaker of a King County Horse Park that the County was preparing to sell. The neighbors came together to prevent that in the 1970s, eventually negotiated a series of leases, and was just awarded a 30 year lease to continue to run and maintain the facility. It is still an official park.
The club supports itself with memberships and, more visibly, horse shows in April-Sept., in it's full size, level, well built and cared for outdoor arena. They are challenging to horse and rider, provide excellent experience, create good community, and are for everybody, member or nonmember alike. For those who prefer to watch, it is free and there is a cook shack so food is available for the Western Games and English/Western/Trail shows.
We maintain and continuely improve the grounds of the park. We strive to have good realtionships with the community, the County, the nearby homeowners, and especially the countless equestrians who live, board or take lessons near the facility. All can benefit from the "schooling shows" that include four major areas: English/Western pleasure and equitation and Trail; Western Pattern Games; Dressage; and Hunter/Jumper. The photos here are already appreciated by the riders. I am urging others in the area to take a look at the fun and the facility to see if they want to come give it a try.
We are proud to be a part of the Horse Community here at Hollywood Hill. I hope to spread just a few of the reasons through this page. I can hope it will make more nearby people realize that it is a gem to have. For more information our Web page is: Hollywoodhillsaddleclub.com

Cowgirl Spirit Equine Rescue

I have been their for photographer for about a year now, helping get out images of horses that need adoption. You'll see there is a gallery of their horses - I try to keep it up to date, and eliminate any horses that are adopted.

The Seattle Mounted Patrol

I have been with them about a year too. I enjoy shooting their community police work with the public, showing them for the crime deterrent that they are, and showing off their other talents and what they are ready for in case we should need them for more problematic situations.

The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary

This id in South Dakota. I can remember how many hundred square miles devoted to taking mustangs and wild horses off the Bureau of Land Management Hands and giving them good homes where they are truly free to roam. None of them are ever ridden, only looked at, photographed and occasionally used in a movie. They are beautiful. Take a look.


The rest of my photos are not so easily categorized as I take them only at my own whim. Seattle is here, other animals including Heron and Snow Leopards, toys, and street scenes; again, take a look. You might be surprised what a horse photographer can do.

Thank you for looking,
