Ocala, FL (April 6, 2010) – Equestrian artist Moe Hahn has captured in action the beautiful bay horses that make up eight-time USEF National Four-In-Hand Combined Driving Champion Chester Weber’s team. Hahn, who lives in Ocala, is a well-known artist who displays her work at the Ocala Breeders’ Feed & Supply Stores in Ocala, Florida.
“I am painting Team Weber from a photo that I took last year during the Live Oak competition. I love the ambience of Live Oak and this year was great because Chester stopped by my booth and signed the painting,” Hahn said. “I started the painting about one month ago and have a few more months before it will be finished.”
Hahn has completed a sister piece to the one she is working on now, also taken from a photo she took at Live Oak. “I have been a vendor at Live Oak for the last five years. It’s the only one I do all year,” Hahn said. “Both paintings were taken from photos I took at the Hilton’s Haven obstacle at Live Oak.”
Hahn has been in the horse industry for 40 years, and started painting 15 years ago. Her artwork is showcased year round at both OBS Feed Stores in Ocala and Hahn said she keeps it “old school” and doesn’t have a website or email. “I am at the OBS Feed Store every Saturday all year long. I paint all day long on Saturday and people don’t seem to have a problem finding me,” she said. “It works for me.”
The horses in Hahn’s newest painting are part of Weber’s famous four-in-hand team. Weber broke his own record this year at Live Oak, winning the USEF National Four-In-Hand Championship title for the eighth year in a row. Weber now has his sights on representing the United States in the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky this fall.
