A cold start to the day at Bovington but that did not deter our show jumpers from a fine day of competition.
As usual a challenging course set by Stuart to help find the top riders.
To me nothing looks better than rider and horse working together to complete the round in the best possible time. Our part to is to provide some great equestrian photography.
We could just record the action but where is the fun in that. We decided to take some rider portraits as well. This is a project we will be continuing throughout the year. In part we will be doing some of it to raise funds for the Dorset Somerset Air Ambulance.
WE have set up a just giving page at 10 Years of Equestrian Photography.
Many may not realise that the Air Ambulance is basically privately funded and that on average a mission costs £2500. So there we have or target, fund a mission.
This will be my tenth year of Equestrian Photography so what a great way to put something back, something that has been needed by a number of riders and their family.
