Boise Photographer Meets the EhCapa Queen
Idaho photography… it’s always an adventure. I’ve had the privilege of doing portraits this young lady for a couple years. This year she was crowned the 2017 Ehcapa Queen and ask if I could come to her place to shoot photos. Little did I know she lived on the side of a mountain! After the slow drive up to Robie Creek, we came to a little piece of heaven.
I knew the photo shoot would take two camera’s and I wasn’t sure how many jumps Boone would have in her. The training pad was small and Boone took several trial jumps to get use to the camera flash. She also had to deal with the photographer shooting straight on. Her first three practice runs were with the bar low to the ground. I could tell she was ready to perform but confused with the height. This horse was ready to do some serious jumping. Lucky for me, Boone was very forgiving and was able to navigate around all her new obstacles. As you can see from the photos the girl and her horse private performance was spectacular.
EhCapa bareback riders clubs have been around since 1956. There is a very active club in the Treasure Valley. The young bareback riders, ages 8 – 19 years old, perform all over the west. It is a nonprofit organization that is financed by its participation in events. To learn more or to help support their program visit here.
