Wild Hoofbeats: The Horses of Adobe Town
Carol Walker has been taking photographs since she could hold a camera. Her passion for horses began
even earlier. An international wildlife photographer for some 30 years, in 2000 Carol enhanced her portfolio
and her business, Living Images, by specializing in horse photography. In 2004 she made her first
trip to the Red Desert of Wyoming where she fell in love with the wild horses of Adobe Town, a vast
public landscape featuring canyons, hoodoos and mesas. A year later Carol discovered that most of the
horses she had been following and photographing would be rounded up by helicopters for removal from
their homes, and their freedom. This began her journey as a wild horse advocate committed to keeping
America’s wild horses in the wild, with their families.
For Carol, photography has been a powerful tool for advocacy and change. Through a breathtaking
slideshow presentation accompanied by music, Carol features the four wild horse herds she’s been following
for the past 11 years. Hear first-hand accounts of Carol’s experiences as a wild horse advocate
and photographer and, as a bonus, get insider tips on photography, including the difference between
taking photos of domestic horses and wild horses. (Many tips translate to other types of animal photography.)
Come away with up-to-date information into the plight of America’s wild horses and how you
can help, as well as information on where to view and photograph horses in the wild here in Colorado.
Meet Carol post-presentation for sales and signings of
artwork and books, including Wild Hoofbeats, Horse Photography
and the newly released 2015 Galloping to Freedom, highlighting
the reunion of 10 wild horses from Adobe Town with their
families at the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary, book sponsored by Cana Projects.
All Sales benefit wild horse preservation efforts.
