Kelly Marks, equine behaviourist and founder of Intelligent Horsemanship, has launched a new exciting competition for young horse enthusiasts. The Intelligent Horsemanship Young Equestrian Photographer of the Year competition offers a substantial £500 top prize for the winning image.

“I founded Intelligent Horsemanship as a learning resource for horse owners to access trusted practical help and support”, said Kelly Marks. “We combine equine psychology and proven techniques to teach a kind and effective way to train and enjoy our horses. A big part of our membership ethos is to be as supportive as possible, which is how the idea of this competition to encourage and celebrate young talent evolved.”
