Equine Artists of the World Celebrate the Horse

Karen Cassidy


In The Beginning

Panel before
Artist Comments: Ever since I can remember I have been star struck with the horse.....any horse. At the tender age of two and half, my parents took me to the Calgary Stampede.When the announcer asked the crowd. "Who wants to ride the next wild bronc?." I immediately jumped up screaming . "I do,I do!"Everyone laughed. I was serious. Coming from a poor rural home, my parents could not afford to buy me a horse I dreamed and prayed for. My cousin built my first horse for me....this sawhorse that I named Misty....I loved her. I suspect that many horse lovers started out with the same breed of horse that I did.
