Rossi Vay often says that she was “born and raised in the horses’ stalls” on the farm she shared with her family in Eastern Kentucky. She and her chestnut Arabian gelding, Va Dinari, successfully competed in local horse shows until adulthood entered her life and she paused her equine passions. After her own children became adults, Rossi was drawn back to her first love, her horses. She relocated to the heart of horse country, Louisville, KY. Taking classes through the Equine Industry Program at the University of Louisville (U of L), she became a photojournalist for the student published newsletter, “Hoofprints,” interviewing many recognized horse industry executives and photographing: Thoroughbred racing at Churchill Downs, Ellis Park, and The Curraugh Jumping in the City, Dublin, Ireland Downs After Dark, the parade for Triple Crown Winner, American Pharoah The Egyptian Event sponsored by The Pyramid Society The North American Junior and Young Rider Competition at KY Horse Park The Louisville Polo Team U of L Western Equestrian competitions The First Annual U of L vs University of Kentucky Saddle Seat competition The 2015 Kentucky State 4-H Horse Show “Being a photojournalist is exciting to say the least, but I have other equine aspirations, as well,” she admits. “The younger equestrians are the future of our industry. It’s time that stories are told of how human and horse partnerships have won the world in a manner that is beneficial to them.” Rossi has planned an entire series based upon the escapades of The Clayburn kids and Epona, as they travel through time to the days of when human and horse history is being made.
