Photographers

In support of offering members the best horse show experience, SSHBEA has established partnerships with photography companies to capture memories. In the interest of supporting this intent, SSHBEA would like for our members and partners to know that SSHBEA will follow the terms and conditions of use for the images as defined by our photography partners. As Example, SSHBEA will not use images captured by photography partners in support of any official proceeding or hearing for any reason without a court order. Our photography partners greatly enhance our horse show experience and we look forward to offering their continued services at SSHBEA events.
