She would come to the beginning of the meets for Genesee Valley hunt and take photographs of everyone on horseback and others that had come to see riders and hounds off to hunt. Carrie could be seen with her camera in hand at all the local horse events put on by Genesee Valley Riding Club, Genesee Valley Hunt and Pony Club; taking photos of riders and their horses, in competition, walking down Main Street on opening day of formal hunting, and in sweet moments either waiting for their ride turn or after finishing.
