My go to camera is a Canon 5D Mark IV. Waited for a long time  for the Mark IV version to come along.  I also use the Mark III during sessions.  I also have a Canon 5D Mark II, but rarely use it, but it travels with me as a backup.  I use to have a 7D Mark I, but have lost it to my daughter who has caught the photography bug.

Paul Buff's Alien Bee 1600, I have 4 of them and 2 800s.  These are inexpensive and very tough.  They hold up well for being toted around for location to location.  I have so many from the days I did equine events and did well with  the dusty situations I came across in the arenas.

This is my bag!  A Lowpro 200 Roller Bag.  I have had this bag for 5 years now and it has held up wonderfully. I may not collect lenses, but I seem to collect bags,   My equipment stays in this bag most of time, but I have several other bags that I use when I need to travel lighter.

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens - a 70-200 is a must have lens for equine photography and love it for portraits.  Although I do not use the f/2.8  very often  for equine, it is useful for portraits.  I use this lens at 80% of the time.
