RIDEN Since childhood, Emily Riden has been drawn to capturing life through both words and images. At a young age, she was snapping photos and compiling them into scrapbooks, writing lengthy journal entries, and creating a family “newsletter” full of photos and family stories to be sent at Christmas time. At the Pennsylvania State University, Riden further embraced her love for both writing and photography. While there, she shot photos and wrote for the university’s Daily Collegian newspaper; took various photography classes; and began shooting friends’ sporting events and games, and her own Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) team horse shows. Simultaneously, Riden recognized the opportunity to combine her passion for photography and writing with her lifelong love of horses, and after receiving degrees in public relations and equine science, she entered the equestrian public relations field. Today, Riden is an account executive for leading equestrian public relations company Jump Media and splits her time between Pennsylvania and Florida. Riden can generally be found ringside with a camera in hand or in the press room of major horse shows across North America, from the Washington International Horse Show in Washington, D.C., to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto, ON. Riden’s photos can regularly be found throughout the pages of equestrian publications, where they have also graced covers and even been re-created as poster artwork for horse shows such as the Capital Challenge Horse Show.  |  @emilyriden | @jumpmediallc
