While visiting Truckee earlier this month, I I had the opportunity to tag along with a friend and experience a little bit of what horse ownership is like. For the last year Nina Pivirotto has re-committed to one of her early loves, owning and caring for a horse. At first glance, her main man Joker is an absolutely impressive and MASSIVE creature. To be clear, Joker is no trail horse either. Watching her work mentally and physically with such a majestic being was impressive. As unseasonal spring snow fell, I captured these images of Nina, Joker, and life in the quintessential mountain town of Truckee, CA.
