Leslie Elliott and Angels on Horseback

Leslie Elliott and Angels on Horseback.
Truly, one of the most rewarding things I get to photograph is Angels on Horseback and the volunteers and students. Evelyn has been involved for several years now and I get to do a lot of their photography and video. The organization serves several counties in addition to our home county of Pickens here in North Georgia. I have come to know so many great volunteers and students in the years I’ve been working with them. Probably the biggest honor for me has been to get to know Leslie Elliott the Founder of AOH. She and her husband Bruce have become great friends to Evelyn and I as well as the entire Jasper community. Leslie had a vision over 15 years ago to offer therapeutic riding to children and adults. She and others have pursued that vision to their current status (here is a link to check out all they do: https://www.angelsonhorseback.org/). The AOH Fall Horse Show was held this past Saturday and during that show, Leslie was honored for her hard work as she, and her two horses (Taylor left, Macho right), are retiring. Leslie has worked for 15 years to build a great service for disabled children and adults, as well as all the volunteers who have benefited from helping out as well. I know they will miss her, but will be reminded daily of her efforts as they enter the “Leslie Elliott Arena” for each lesson they conduct. Follow your vision, get involved, the World will always be a better place because of those that do.
