Hey Y'all, I'm the barefoot trimmer for a fledgling horse sanctuary called Trinity Horse Refuge. We're located in the heartland of rice country in Wheatland, California, and it's hard to network when you're in the middle of nowhere.

We need people to spread the word about the sanctuary and, of course, donations, so if you can't do one, please do the other! You may not realize it, but facebook shares and likes are so important to a non-profit because while you may not be able to donate, someone you know might see a shared post and donate to our cause.  

(There's a video of our horses in the first link)……

If you live in Sacramento or somewhere close you are welcome to come visit our horses or volunteer.

Group Info

:bulletgreen: Welcome to the dA group dedicated to fine equine art !

Our goal is to provide visitors with a list of artists they should not miss when looking for horse art. Look at the rules on upper right of the page to know exactly how it works. When you submit art it goes through standards review and gets accepted or not depending on it. Above is a list of contributors (elite artists) of the group. Enjoy the ride !

I am a self employed photographer, my business is called JustBE Photography.
I am currently looking for an equine artist and or manipulationist, to join on a commission/freelance basis.
You will get paid! *Real Money** Through paypal, and for this reason you really have to be over 16 (over 18 preferably) to apply for the position.
I am based in the north west of england, but it doesnt really matter if you live down south/another country.

The job itself;
I take images at local horse shows and horse and rider photoshoots, and i am looking for someone to draw sketches/make manipulations out of my images, the fact is i cannot draw! So my manipulations nor my sketches are any good!
Depending on the sketch/manip, the money will be split 60% (me) 40% (you). This may change over time depending on how many offers etc we get.
How to apply;
Note me/message me/comment below.
If interested or no of anyone that will be.

There wont be an interview as such, but i will be asking people to make examples for me, to see if you are what my business needs and vice versa.

Looking forward to hearing from you :) (Smile)
Beth :) (Smile)

It's sad ther is no photography folder, I'd love to join instead of just watching this amazing group :) 
GalopaWXY Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well you're at Equine-Photography ! It's kind of the same idea with quality standards and everything.
I don't feel capable of taking up the challenge of reviewing photography along with everything else xD I already struggle with digital art...
Thanks for being with us anyway though
Tatzuyoshi Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hello, I was wondering if this… would be acceptable to submit for the group? Just making sure. :) 
GalopaWXY Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Your anatomy is a bit off on this, especially the nose ^^
Please submit it directly instead of asking on the group's page as comments often go unoticed
Tatzuyoshi Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, once I finished it I thought the muzzle was a bit small. :blush: I will try and improve though! And thanks! 
blackseagull Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Your particular image does not yet reach the EEA standards but you are always welcome to submit your art for consideration :)
Tatzuyoshi Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ok thank you for letting me know. :) I will try and improve in my next painting! :eager: by darkmoon3636

Hello folks !
I submitted a deviation quite a few days ago and I am getting worried this request will expired...
Is there a gigantic queue waiting for approval just before my pic ?
GalopaWXY Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
We're on maximum expiry dates offered by deviantART, one month. It's only been a few days since you submitted it and it's very normal that it hasn't been looked at yet. No worries x)
Please ask this kind of question in the deviation submission process and not the EEA profile !
I don't manage digital paintings so you'll have to wait for the specialist to come online :)
Hokkohono Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh ok sorry, I am too impatient.
I already made a short comment on my submission process and I didn't want to double comment.
My deviations being approved or not by the group is an important criteria of achievment to me.
That's why I am so impatient for the answer ^^

Miep23 Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2013
I have to say Iīm a little disapointed, I read some comments and one already mentioned what I was thinking all the time:
you sometimes just accept something because itīs from a spezific person you like.

I noticed that some drawings in the gallery have a really(!) bad anatomy ( I can name you them if you want and also tell you why the anatomy is bad) but I donīt want to expose the artist.
But when itīs bad anatomy, why did you accepted it? You can clearly see the bad anatomy...
but maybe because the person has some other drawings in the gallery (the others are wonderful, but that one...)
I have some other examples too.

and I saw a lot of beautiful work that got declined (also heard that from friends) with very good anatomy (not traced).

But I donīt want to accuse anybody, I just want to hear your opinion, so please donīt "hate" me or flag this as spam or something,
thanks for your time.
GalopaWXY Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

You couldn't be more mistaken about "people we like". Incoming submissions are presented to us in a list much like the watchlist of deviantART, making it alot easier for us to review from the image than to bother looking at who submitted it.
There are two of us accepting submissions and as human beings, we obviously have different views on art. If we took any more moderators (providing anyone would actually want to be) the views and standards would keep multiplying, yet the same people who complain that the standards are too different complain about the time it takes to be reviewed.

There have ALWAYS been unhappy turned down members ever since this group got created 8 years ago and because it's a standards-based group, there will always be. They come in through comments, notes, deviation process comments. It's very hard on the admins' nerves to keep reading such hate all the time : that's why there's less and less activity. Ultimately it will probably end up dying because of this.

I do not have the courage / motivation to keep letting these kind of comments into my life which is complicated enough as it is, like anyone's. It's much easier to ignore/hide them (especially when made on the front page u_u) and keep the group running for people who actually enjoy being part of it.
Anyone who doesn't, you know where the "leave the group" button is.

This answer is as much for you (thank you for not flaming and being constructive and polite) as for any MORE unhappy members of the EEA.
blackseagull Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2013  Student Digital Artist
As you should know had you read the rules and info, anatomy is one possible measure out of many we use to judge art. There can be many other merits to a piece that outweigh some other.

Miep23 Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2013
Yes I read the rules and it says:
"important, unless purposefully done wrong"
and Iīm very sure that itīs not(!) purposfully done wrong, because itīs a realistic style with some bad anatomy!
And there are some other drawings with anatomymistakes too!

Oh and I donīt talk about the "comic" or funny horses.

Lija9 Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2013
Hey I was thinking.. can I submit this artwork:…

or it's maybe not good enough?
GalopaWXY Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
When you're wondering, it's better to give it a shot rather than posting acomment that may go unoticed x)
For now you need more work on shading and background details ^^
Blood-Huntress Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2013  Student General Artist
Or do you guys only accept certain people's artwork now? I've noticed this a long time now. :-(
Miep23 Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2013
I noticed that too and I can "prove" it ,
some drawings in here have a really bad anatomy but they got accepted (maybe because itīs from a person who has a lot other drawings in this gallery, her other drawing are wonderful...but that one....)
