If you receive the Horse Illustrated magazine, make sure you turn to pg. 24-26 and read all about "The "Appalachian Trainer Face Off", a very special horse rescue program created by Heart of Phoenix owner Tinia Creamer in West Virginia. This amazing 100 day make over program gives rescue horses a second chance! This article features several of my images taken during the event.

When I learned about the #ATFO, I was literally ALL over it, because I instantly understood the importance and impact this event would have. I knew it was magazine worthy and that it should be talked about on a much wider and bigger scale, which ultimately would help promote this successful competition.

I followed several trainers for the duration of the program and wrote three separate blogs capturing their journey, obstacles and successes.
