About The Author- Vaughn Wilson
I got my first horse when I was twelve, and I haven't been horseless
I can't be. My parents insist that the first word I said as a child was "horse" and I have no reason to doubt them. Horses are a much a part of me as my heart, soul, and personality. That is what I have discovered about most "horse people". It doesn't mean that they make their living with horses; it means that they can't live without them. And in most cases, with fond memories and a tear in their eye, horse people love to tell the story of their "special horse," the horse that changed their life.
Horse people usually have to have a real job to finance their addiction to horses. For me, that job is photography. I'm a portrait photographer and artist. Thankfully, opportunity now allows me to combine my greatest love with my career. This book is about the horses that, for whatever reason, hold a special place in the hearts of my subjects. My job is to tell that story both in word and portraiture. Tell me about that special horse, and I'll tell the world.
"I can't think of another soul who could have produced this book. Vaughn Wilson is a passionate horseman, skilled photographer, talented painter and the type of interviewer who doesn't get in the way of a good story. If you like horses and horse people, you'll love this book."
by Darrell Dodds, Publisher, Western Horseman Magazine.
