About Calico Pony

My name is Katie Mendl and I am the Calico Pony Founder. I am a local Toowoomba photographer and I have worked with both horses, and photography, for many years. 

I have worked throughout Australia with Polo Ponies, Standardbreds and Thoroughbreds before studying Agricultural Commerce, Teaching and then finally falling on my greatest passion, photography. 

In my downtime, as a way to unwind and get away from, at times stressful work commitments, I head out into the countryside and photographhorses. 

I have been blessed that many local horse studs and owners have opened their gates to me, allowing me to wander their paddocks and photograph their beautiful horses. 

I plan on building on my image library in coming months, and years, so if you are interested in purchasing a fine art print for your home, or simply love horse photography, please follow my Facebook page for updates! 

I hope you enjoy my images as much as I love taking them. And the icing on the cake is the opportunity I get to spend time with these soulful, breathtaking creatures.
