SupporterSunday

This special #SupporterSunday comes from the unique fine arts photographer and wild horse advocate, Kimerlee Curyl of KIMERLEE CURYL PHOTOGRAPHY
Dedicated to the cause for many years, Kimerlee’s hope is to inspire others, not only to appreciate the beauty of wild horses, but to take an interest in helping preserve their place on this land.
Following is the story of her horse Regalo, who was captured from the Great Basin Divide where more wild horses are in danger of being stripped of their freedom in August.

the Flight of Honor ~ Steens Mountain, Oregon, 2010

“We are so connected in our day to day lives but are we really “connected”?…Wings carry our soul to the place we yearn to be…fleeting moments captured, stop us in our tracks, root us to the earth and remind us to fly free”. These creatures are a significant element in Mother Nature and they are a bridge back to the natural world, bringing our consciousness back to a place of intuition and understanding. Returning our senses back to a primitive awareness of the salt of this earth.

Wyoming Wild Horses soon to lose their homes ~ permanently

With the 2011 round up more stallions were left to roam than mares.  Tipping the numbers on sex rations is common practice during roundups.  This very healthy stallion was still roaming with a bachelor band of three others.  He most certainly was capable of having a band of his own.  His wisdom and strength were apparent, his body strong.  Sadly this was a common siting during my 2013 visit to the area.

The Great Divide Basin was home to my mustang for nearly 18 months…his character and life was shaped and mapped by this G R E A T vast and open  area….please take a moment to help the horses who still call this home.  The Rock Springs Grazing association is a powerful group and these horses desperately need you voice ~ kc

EXCERPTS FROM A DIARY OF

WILD HORSE DREAMS // 2009

This is a recollection of five days in June spent among the wild horses of Utah.  Being granted my place with them, within the herd, blanketed by their acceptance, was a gift I hope to repay through art and awareness. My own mare, an exquisite Paint named Sequoia, has blessed me with so many gifts and life lessons. It is through her that I received my calling, my passion and my drive. Because of her, in 2004 I switched to the backside of a camera and started this journey. A journey that began with the dream of a little girl—to be surrounded by horses and mountains. Horses are my inspiration.  They teach us many things, including, if we really pay attention, how to be better humans.
