Les Femmes Equestres Calendar Makes Debut, Benefits Local Charities

Wellington, FL - November 24, 2008 - Local feature and social photographer Gary Kane has photographed a star-studded cast of equestrian women in Wellington, Florida. The charity driven calendar, Les Femmes Equestres, benefits Pure Thoughts Horse Rescue and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Along with his wife Carrie, who styled each of the photo shoots, Kane has captured a glamorous side of several prominent equestrians, wearing everything from ball gowns to little black cocktail dresses.

The calendar, the first of its kind in the equestrian world, features riders that compete in hunters, jumpers and dressage, all of whom contributed both time and resources to the project. The calendar was photographed on location in Wellington between April and June of this year at Hampton Green, Gotham North, Ashland Farm, Salamander Farm, and Mosquito Mound Farms. The calendar contains fashionable images of local riders Georgina Bloomberg, Paige Johnson, Amy Swerdlin, Monica Burssens, Ainsley Vince, and several other notables. The women are dressed in colorful and glamorous dresses, and not the usual "uniform" that they are often seen wearing at the show grounds.

The Kanes, whose work appears regularly on the covers of Wellington and Sidelines Magazines and are regular contributors to various equestrian and polo magazines, are excited to cast some of equestrian sport's fresh faces in a calendar with a charitable cause. Proceeds will benefit two local charities, Pure Thoughts Horse Rescue and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Pure Thoughts Horse Rescue is dedicated to saving the lives of innocent horses, yearlings, and foals that are destined for slaughter. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer supports the American Cancer Society's lifesaving research, prevention, early detection, and support programs for thousands of patients and their families.

The Les Femmes Equestres calendar is now available at various distribution outlets in Wellington, Florida, including The Tackeria, Phelps Media Group, Polo Gear, Kane Photography, the two charitable organizations named, and several other equine establishments throughout the community.

To purchase calendars in bulk, or to host a calendar signing event, contact Kane Photography at 561-333-2198, or info@garykane.com.
