Must follow! - EJ Lazenby talented photographer with an artistic twist. She is also a tutor and runs equine photography workshops, based in the UK.

Gentle Carousel's teams of tiny horses visit over 25,000 adults and children each year inside hospitals, hospice programs, and with families, veterans and first responders who have experienced traumatic events.
