Photographing Wild Horses

December, 2020

A few hours’ drive from my home is a field deep in the Missouri Ozarks. The field is quiet and secluded, tucked back at the end of a series of dirt roads. But if you stumble across this particular field you might get a surprise – the thundering sound of wild horses. The wild horses of Shannon County, Missouri are technically “feral” rather than wild. Their ancestors were likely domesticated animals turned loose during the economic difficulties of the Great Depression. Today, the horses run free in the fields and forests of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways.
This ebook will help you find and photograph wild horses – or even domesticated ones. Many of the lessons in this ebook apply to photographing other animals in the wild.
