Karen Hao


Karen Hoa & her two warmblood giants (they're massive to me considering the most common horse for me to see are western pleasure quarter horses!), Lenny & Hopkins <3 Photographed at their boarding facility in Wellington, Florida. I was lucky enough to get to photograph these three (and Karen's boyfriend, Ryan who hopped in for a quick family photo) while on vacation in Florida last month!

Karen used to show both horses in the hunter jumper rings around Florida, but a few years ago she decided she was a little burnt out from the show life and chose to retire. She now keeps her two favorite boys as pasture pets and is soon building a barn on her own property to fulfill her lifelong dream of having her very own horse barn right outside her door!
