It is no secret that I have a strong affection for working dogs,  in fact, any animal that works for the benefit of man.  But I have never had as much time working with that other great friend of man; the horse or this case the pony.

After a chance introduction to Eric Starke, winner of the prestigious Fred Taylor Memorial Trophy for Working Hill Ponies at the Scottish Game Fair, and with his help, a long-awaited photographic road-trip to Scotland came into being. At last, I could follow and photograph that dwindling breed of traditional Highland ghillies who work their ponies in the remote Scottish Highlands.

My time with, Eric, plus his ponies Mia and Cally was highly memorable as I watched them working in the step sided Angus Glens bringing the Red Deer Stags off the hill, often over terrain that would be inaccessible to even the highest tech modern off-road multi-terrain vehicles.

The photography was of a commission for a magazine article about the use of Highland Ponies in the Scottish Highlands then with the support of The Highland Pony Society I then published a photo book containing many of the images
