Milestone Equestrian offers a variety of services in addition to training services.
Photography, Videography And Advertising for Sales Ads
In order to give your horse the best chance in finding their new home, attractive photos and appealing videos are highly beneficial in catching the eyes of potential buyers and piquing their interest in your horse. Ensuring that your horse is set up correctly and in a flattering manner in their photos is what can separate them from other horses on the market. Shelby is very proficient with Adobe Photoshop editing and Final Cut Pro/Sony Vegas video editing software and can help you to create a professional and appealing sales ad for your horse. Her reach across her social medias of over 100k followers is an effective way to reach buyers from all around North America as well as increasing the traffic on your horse’s ads when shared in Facebook groups and other equine sites. This is currently only offered to residents of the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. Small travel fee may apply to certain areas.
A sales photo session includes conformation shots, headshots (can do black background if customer is interested and has an area that would work to shoot these in, riding and/or free lunging photos. Photos will turnout best in brightly lit areas, very dim indoors tend to produce more grainy photos so it is highly recommended to have a well lit arena or good, outdoor lighting. The pricing for photo sessions starts at $35.
A sales video includes flat and/or jumping under saddle footage with flattering video stills from acquired footage, introduction and further information about the horse. For a $5 extra charge, free lunging and/or free jumping video can also be added or if the customer wishes, this can replace the riding footage if the horse is not yet broke/owner does not wish to include riding footage in the video. The video will be set to music and uploaded to the Milestone Equestrian channel, where the customer will be provided a link. A file can be sent, as well, if the customer prefers to upload the video to their own channel. Videography starts at $45. If the customer wishes to have someone ride their horse in the video, this can also be provided for an extra charge (due to needed to bring an extra hand to ride and/or video)
