Tracey Elliot-Reep grew up on her mother’s Shilstone Rocks stud farm in South West England. She now has her base producing cards, calendars and books in Widecombe-in-the-Moor on Dartmoor. After completing art college she worked and sketched the animals in a travelling circus and then travelled through Europe and North America, teaching horse riding before qualifying as a photographer in South Wales. For five years she worked as a freelance photojournalist for magazines, during which time she interviewed Royalty at Buckingham Palace, and she rode the length of New Zealand.

She started her card business twenty-one years ago with six local Dartmoor postcards while living in a caravan with her dog. Her faith and her love of horses, adventure and photography has given her opportunities to travel to many places including Africa, Tibet, Israel and Russia. Tracey has ridden horses from the top of Scotland to Lands End, around Southern Ireland and Wales recently across Southern Europe. She has documented these adventures in four beautiful photographic books. The first was the original New Zealand book, followed by the Ireland story on her Highland ponies. Riding by Faith Across America is about Tracey’s exciting journey riding her two Quarter horses from Mexico to Canada. Due to the New Zealand book’s popularity she has recently released is a new edition of the New Zealand book, which included an additional ride on her Palomino horses. She completed her latest adventure book through Southern Europe with her two little Greek horses last November and this is now available. Last year Tracey has thoroughly enjoyed compiling her Shaggy Sheep book and this year using her favourite photographs she published the new edition of The Dartmoor Pony book which is proving to be a best seller!
“I believe the word enthusiasm has its roots in the combination of two Greek words meaning “God within”. Your passion for photography and horses underscores your enthusiasm.” DM, California
