There is a concern – a sincerity and attention – involved in the way Adrienne DeLiso and Flash Corbisier speak, listen, and take photographs. They are the team behind 1881 Western Photography CO.

Both Adrienne and Flash have unique backgrounds. Adrienne’s father was a professional photographer who specialized in ballet, so photography has been a part of her life from the beginning. She herself has twenty years of experience as a professional, and if you ask her about photographing whales or other wildlife, her eyes will light up. Flash has experience as a painter, graphic designer, animator, art director, and has been shooting professional shots for almost a decade. Both of them are passionate about capturing equine culture. They appreciate the range of expression - from the roughest of cowboys to the most carefully groomed and trained horses. For the past eight years, 1881 has been specializing in equine photography. Adrienne and Flash study different riders and horses in earnest. “Horses are some of the most beautiful animals in the world,” says Adrienne with a glow. Really – these images say more than I can hope to about the quality of their work. These eight photos represent the more artistic side of what they do, but it’s just the tip of an iceberg. If you come to The Ranch, you will also get to enjoy the personalized images that they capture of you and your horse. They will get you in different moments so that you can create the perfect scrapbook of your time here riding with us. If you are as awed by their artistic images as I am, you can purchase them when you visit The Ranch or at their website: www.1881wpc.com.

Our Community - Six Horses and a Wrangler - Ali Fischer

Rico is a mellow Paint who gets spunky when he works cows.

Copper is a smooth ride, and he doesn’t eat much along the trails. He is responsive to leg pressure and thrives with cattle and arena work.

Pistol is sassy but responsive and easy to control.

Big Splash – named for a “splash” of white across his belly – is like a giant puppy, sweet and playful.

Hot Shot needs an experienced rider. He is a good lead horse. Everyone who rides him loves him.

Besides having the coolest haircut, Sonic is responsive, strong, and gentle.

Ali Fischer will liven up any ride with her burbling laugh. She got her first horse – a chestnut Gelding with a white blaze – when she was ten. His name was Comanche. When she says that riding is “just a hobby” for her, I remember the deep shimmer in her eyes when she described Comanche and think there may be other words in her. Regardless of the language used, Ali has an interest in being out at the barn as a wrangler. Her favorite thing about riding is the rush of galloping; “no surprise there,” I tease her when she tells me this. She enjoys the trails out here and the opportunity to help other people learn.
