“I was one of those kids who was always obsessed with horses. It's hard to explain why I love it so much. Having a connection, and partnership, with a 1200lb animal seems like the most magical thing one can experience.” Bianca Shannon
Bianca was born and raised in Italy. She first started riding when she was 9 years old. Now Bianca lives in Santa Fe and works as a wrangle as well as teaching horsemanship for skill-set restructuring to post-911 veterans and active military at Horses for Heroes. Kit was rescued by Bianca 2 years ago. His previous owner left him skin and bones. His ribs and hips were sticking out and had absolutely no muscle on his body. With dedication and a lot of love, Kit has become a strong, brave, and healthy horse.
We met and photographed Bianca and Kit on a chilly, early spring evening at Trinity Ranch outside of Santa Fe.
