Mia Farley and BGS Firecracker. Photo by Shannon Brinkman.

While we’re sad not to be onsite at Red Hills watching and photographing the event ourselves this year, how lucky are we to have as talented and skilled a photographer as Shannon Brinkman and her team to illustrate the action for us? Seriously, every time I open a folder of photos sent by Shannon for us to use in our reports I drool a little. Aspiring photographers (myself included) take note.

Women’s History Bit of the Day:

I’m just going to shamelessly continue the Shannon Brinkman love fest in this section too. In her 21 years of professional photography, Shannon has developed an instantly recognizable look to her images and has amassed quite the portfolio of high-level equestrian events including the last four Olympic Games. Here are her top five photos and a bit more about her.
