Sandi Henning (nee Hall) was born in 1966 in Hamilton, Ontario. Her unhorsey childhood was spent there, in Helensburgh, Scotland, and, finally, in Southern Ontario. Since the age of 4, she has enjoyed traveling, visiting Alberta, Northern Ireland & England many times, with forays into Europe and the U.S.A.
She has been involved with horses for over 35 years as a rider and owner, as well as photographer. In her teens and early 20s she did a little showing, some cross country, hunted, worked for a bloodstock agency, and enjoyed hours of hacking. However, she found the challenge of capturing that perfect equestrian moment on film (and now, digitally) was more rewarding.
Until 2013, Henning could regularly be found at ringside, shooting feature classes whilst keeping notes and stats as research for articles written in her role as a freelance journalist for a number of magazines and media outlets. Henning also works full-time at the Waterloo Public Library as webmaster, and a specialist in social media and marketing.
In the winter, Henning sits on the executive of the Waterloo Wolves Midget AAA Hockey Team, managing their social media, marketing, website, and acting as the team’s official photographer. In this capacity, she has accompanied the team on multiple trips to Kelowna, BC as well as Switzerland, Austria, Germany and Italy. She works in a similar capacity with Boxing by Syd Vanderpool & the SydFIT Health Centre.
