Chrome is pleased to announce the grand-prize winners of our third annual APHA Member Model Search. Danyelle Harp and Jeremy White were selected from a pool of more than 130 candidates and rose to the top of our week-long public online voting, which saw more than 3,800 unique votes cast for our 10 finalists.
A 24-year-old from Lake Stevens, Washington, Danyelle has always been a Paint lover. She currently owns two: The Magic Look, a 2004 sorrel overo gelding, and I Got Big Plans, a 2009 sorrel overo gelding; she shows in all-around competition. Danyelle has combined her passion for Paints with her artistic vision to create a thriving equestrian photography business, named after her Paint. But her experience isn’t limited to behind the camera or in the showpen.
“I’ve modeled everywhere from in-studio to snow-capped mountain-top streams in my late teens and early 20s,” Danyelle said. “It’s unreal to be chosen for this shoot. I’m so excited!”
Jeremy White, a 25-year-old horseman from Gainesville, Florida, was thrilled to be able to combine his favorite things by competing in the Chrome Model Search.
“I’ve been involved in the horse industry for the last 10 years, and horses have always been my passion, along with photography and medicine,” Jeremy said.
Jeremy is currently attending Santa Fe College in pursuit of a nursing degree.
These two grand-prize winners earn a starring role in Chrome’s winter fashion shoot, including an expenses-paid trip to Fort Worth, Texas, for the photo shoot.
Congratulations to our Top 10 finalists on their accomplishment, along with everyone who applied and voted in this contest. APHA members are truly as matchless as their Paint Horses.
