Purple Horse Collaboration

Horse Authority created an Instagram account in 2017 resulting in the discovery of an amazing equine photographer. The timing perfectly coincided with company discussions regarding how to best visually communicate the “why” behind Horse Authority’s social mission.

Thank you to Anna Smolens at Purple Horse Designs for making a difference for horses through collaboration at Horse Authority.

Passion led us here in 2010, although our rebrand and a new website called for quality, one-of-a-kind images representing all horse breeds. It was also important to Horse Authority, which has bootstrapped the endeavor, that the images wouldn’t break the bank.

Equine photographer, Anna Smolens of Purple Horse Designs captures compelling images due to her unique ability to draw authentic, raw emotion from her subjects. The Maryland-based equestrian provides fine art equine and portrait photography.

Additionally, Anna epitomizes natural talent allowing her to effortlessly explore the complex relationship between horses and their humans. That may be why Purple Horse Designs has almost 70K followers on Instagram.

Anna graciously collaborated with Horse Authority thus allowing us to use her magnificent equine photography throughout the site. Certainly, the images will move you, like they do us.

Thank you to Anna Smolens of Purple Horse Designs for making a difference for horses through collaboration!
