Hi, I'm currently wondering how this particular photographer achieved this "soft" effect. I've taken several of my own photographs similar to this, and I simply cannot find out what filter/effect/edit this individual used. Thanks!

The best way to create this soft, low contrast look with a background that fades into white is to shoot outdoors when it is foggy. That's pretty much all you need to do.
Fog plus a shallow depth of field. The fog gives the light dreamy look to the sky and the shallow depth of field gives the creamy bokeh that leads the eye to the sharp horses. It works well with the soft highlights and general low contrast here
