Middleburg Photo visits Goodstone

Karen Monroe and Douglas Gehlsen of Middleburg Photo are two very talented photographers who combine years of experience with exceptional artistic style . . . creating classic moments that you’ll want to treasure forever. From hunt country scenes to memorable weddings, their photographic life revolves around country living at its best. Published nationally in Sophisticated Living Magazine, Doug and Karen are also featured frequently in local newspapers, including Middleburg Life, Horse Country and The Chronicle.

In 2010, Doug received an Accolade of Excellence from the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI).

Karen Monroe grew up on Goodstone with the well-known Warburg grey horses — photographing the very old tradition of fox hunting, showcasing the Hunt Horse and the working hound.

Middleburg Photo will take you on a journey galloping over stone walls and rolling hills that echo with the unforgettable sound of hounds in full cry. The below photographs were taken at a recent winter meet at Goodstone.

Won’t you come out and join us for a stirrup cup? Bring your camera and let the adventure begin!

Side Saddle Hunt – Meath Foxhounds

Side Saddle

“Riding side saddle has been experiencing a revival around the world in the past decade, so it was not a surprise to learn that riders were coming from Ireland, the United Kingdom, America, France, Denmark, Sweden, and Italy. In addition to George and me, the other American riders were side saddle ladies Maggie Johnston (VA) and Susan Corwin (KY), and gentlemen escorts Jan Chrypinski (MD), Shawn Roberts (VA), and Travis Allen Page (SC). Caren Carter (NC) and Denise Hamilton (SC), both experienced side saddle riders, attended to provide support, and Karen Monroe and Doug Gehlsen from Middleburg Photo (VA) were making a photographic record of the weekend.” by Devon Zebrovious from The Chronicle of the Horse.
