Young, emerging artist Caitlyn Dionne will showcase her photography that centers on her love of horses. “I love capturing the beauty of the relation between the horse and rider as well preserving the culture and heritage shared by all equestrians!” – Caitlyn Dionne. This exhibit which will showcase during June is an excellent accompaniment to the Lions Club Rodeo in Caldwell Parish – June 6-8th.

Almost six years ago, Caitlyn Dionne looked through the lens of a camera and realized she could capture something beautiful to preserve a moment in time—the feelings and emotions—forever as she puts.  The now seventeen-year-old has been invited to be a part of three photography shows with her fifteen-year-old sister, Cathryn and friend, Claire Zaunbrecher as the 3-C Cowgirls.  Their pictures reflect the beauty and fullness of equestrian and ranching heritage.

Growing up horseback in Southwest Louisiana, Caitlyn has an understanding of what it truly reflective of the nature and beauty of horses without being artificial or contrived.   She was the 2017 State 4-H Equestrian Premier Exhibitor and was selected as a participant in the 2019 American Quarter Horse Association Ranching Heritage Young Horse Development Program—a year-long scholarship program where participants compete with a yearling foal they raise and train while keeping detailed records of their progress.

Time stops for no one, but the ability to freeze it and share it with people is something I love doing.    –Caitlyn Dionne
