I love to catch the rainbows which frequently appear on Dartmoor through my camera lens. I was born and grew up on Dartmoor, and have been enjoying photographing its ever changing atmospheric moods for over 30 years. The wonderful clouds sweeping over the landscape often bring rain and wonderful rainbows, which always adding that extra special divine touch! I also have a Dartmoor pony called Rainbow and she a set of books for children called "Rainbow and her Farmyard Friends" Each of her seven friends has their own story in the seven colours of the rainbow!
My Dartmoor Ponies give me so much pleasure! I bred them and now I am training three of them to be ridden. Most of them are out of my one Mare, which my mother gave me many years ago called Shilstone Rocks Rainstorm. Hence I have called her foals... Rainbow, Thunder, Lightning, Raindrop and Talia (meaning dew from heaven). She has another on the way this month!
I struggled through school with severe dyslexia and now I want to encourage other children who are struggling with handling and riding my ponies. to show them that despite their obstacles they can still reach for and live their dreams.
