In the spring of 2004, Pam Eckelbarger from Hoof Pix Sport Horse Photography took Joan under her wing as her assistant, teaching her all about dressage and eventing photography. Now Joan spends most weekends from May through September capturing the beauty of dressage and the thrill of eventing through her camera lens.
