What a fabulous day with the wild horses! We headed out early today to try and avoid the extreme heat, and the horses cooperated. The north unit was up in the hills, but the south group was just napping when we arrived. A few test photos, and then it was waiting and see what developed. We were gifted with a few aggressive moments between the males, lots of looks out way, and moving a little closer to check us out, but best of all was the 13 day old foal that went from napping with mom watching over him to nursing, to a family photo op with mom, dad, and the foal. Jen knows the animals by name, what behaviors to expect, and made sure that we stayed a respectful distance away at all times. As we left the south group, we found a couple of smaller groups on our way home. A truly magical experience!


My husband and I took the Sunrise/Sunset photo safari tour while we were visiting the Utah National Parks. It was a wonderful experience to end our vacation on. Jen was an excellent tour guide. She was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable on the Onaqui wild horses. She picked us up at our hotel early in the morning and drove us to the area where the wild horses are located. We immediately encountered one of the wild horse herds. With Jen's extensive knowledge of these wild horses, she anticipated that they would be moving to a watering hole. So we setup our spot near the watering hole and shortly thereafter the horses moved to the watering hole, offering us some great photo opportunities and viewing of these beautiful wild animals. Throughout the tour Jen provided insight about the horses and the management of these wild horses. It was amazing how she could identify each horse, knew their names and behaviors. In addition to this Jen was very respectful of the horses and their boundaries. If the horses were getting too close to us, she would reposition us to another location. She did a great job positioning us close enough to the horses to photograph and observe them, while also maintaining a safe and respectful distance from the wild horses. Jen also provided excellent photography hints while taking pictures, both on composition and lighting, as well as positioning ourselves with wonderful backgrounds. She was very willing to share her photography expertise with us, and answered any questions that we had. We highly recommend taking this unique tour. It was definitely worth taking.


An amazing experience! Jen makes it so easy and is so easy to be around. We are not professional photographers but just wanted to try something different and add to our ski trip. It was a fantastic experience and we highly recommend Jen. She wrote us the sweetest thank you note afterwards too.


I can't really find the words to share how my experience with the horses affected me. It was amazing, breathtaking, soul stirring.... I have been following several herds and seen some of the Arizona mustangs before. There are amazing as well. All mustangs are! But, I absolutely fell in love with the Onaqui wild horses. They are special. I fell in love because I was able to hear their stories, history, challenges, family dynamics etc from someone, Jen Rogers, who has a passion and love for these horses that can't help but rub off. It's contagious. Jen's intimate knowledge of the land and the horses was priceless. She was able to anticipate the horses movements and interactions with each other to position us to get amazing shots and witness their daily activities. We were able to do this while maintaining a respectful distance that would not interfere with or change behavior. I respect the latter immensely as nothing grieves me more than swarms of photographers encroaching on wildlife. I will only support photographers that practice ethical, respectful photography. I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed my experience. Thank you Jen Rogers for a life changing day. Note - Be sure to buy the guide book. It's so helpful when you are going through your images.

If you have any interest in Wild Horses and photography, this is an absolute must do. Jen has an amazing knowledge, passion, and enthusiasm for the Onaqui Wild Horse Herd. Molly and I spent two days with Jen photographing the herd in late October. As with any wildlife photography ... patience and persistence pays off. Jen's expertise of the horse's behavior helped position us to capture some excellent images. The horses are beautiful and can be much more active than we had anticipated. The landscape is impressive and provides that quintessential 'western' look.


Jen was amazing. She got two mobility challenged 70 year olds up close to both the north and south herds. We enjoyed the detailed information on individual horses and family groups, as well as info on wild horse management on this range. We would give her 10 stars if we could.


I cannot recommend Jen’s tour enough. She was able to accommodate my travel schedule and took me out to see the north herd right after sunrise. This tour exceeded my expectations. Not only did I capture incredible photos, but Jen’s knowledge of each horse and their dynamic within the herd was astounding. I learned so much about the herd and their habitat. It seemed that the horses knew Jen and were at ease with her presence. Jen felt more like a friend rather than a tour guide; I will definitely book this tour again the next time I am in Park City.


My husband and I spent an amazing afternoon with Jen and her horses. The most amazing part was Jen's relationship with the horses of both herds she took us to see. They were very at ease around us because we were with her. She's spent a considerable amount of time hanging out with them. We were blessed with great light in the afternoon when the large herd came into a rain filled water hole.


Our tour with Jen was one of the highlights of our trip. We booked it because we wanted to rekindle our love of photography. While it did that, it also made us more interested in horses and their behavior. Having followed the horses for years, knowing their behavior, as well as, having a passion for them, Jen gave us unexpected insight. That insight into their behavior helped us take better pictures …and increased our desire to know more. And, Jen was delightful; we hope to see her again the next time we travel in that area.


My adult daughter and I booked the trip with Jen and it was amazing. Not only did Jen take us out to the range where the horses were, but she explained all about their behavior, what to watch for and what to expect. This allowed us to be ready for photographic opportunities. I would consider it very unlikely to have the photo success we had without Jen’s guidance. She is a wonderful guide and just overall great lady.
