Chariots for Charity

It's time to bring my blog back to life! I have been so busy with senior and family pictures, I have been neglecting my blog, so I am going to make a dedicated effort to start blogging regularly! I will try to keep it interesting, with local events, photography tips, photoshop tips, places to photograph, etc.!

To start things off, Sunday I headed to the McCreery Ranch just outside of Gillette, Wyoming, for the Chariots for Charity fundraiser event for the Gillette Shriners.  With only a $5.00 admittance, this was an exciting way to spend an afternoon! For anyone who has never attended chariot races, a team of horses are attached to a homemade chariot and they are raced in a match race style on a quarter-mile straight track.

 It is a winter event, held regardless of the weather, so dress accordingly! However, the nice thing is that you park right along the track, so even if you choose to bring lawn chairs or a tailgate, your heater is always close by! It's a very exciting, action-packed event and a great way to spend the day with the family!


All of the images from the races on the Sunday can be viewed at Thompson Photography ~ Chariots for Charity . All of the profits from the November sales in this gallery will be donated back to the Wyoming Shriners!
