The Horse Owners and Pony Exhibitors held the H.O.P.E. Spring Show 2017 at Onley Grounds Equestrian Complex near Rugby and we were delighted to have been invited along to take the official photographs.

It was a late booking for us and unfortunately some of our regular photographers were on other jobs, so we were stretched a bit thinly. As a consequence we did unfortunately miss a few classes.

We were delighted to have been asked to provide our equestrian photography services for the Tackley Horse Pony Show – especially since they’d reached their 50th Anniversary!

It was great to be back in the wonderful grounds of Bignell Park Farm for the Bicester Warden Hill Hunter Trials and what a difference a year makes! Last year’s event was cancelled due to appalling weather: this year’s couldn’t have been better!

Glorious spring sunshine and temperatures that hint at a spectacular summer to come greeted the competitors as they took to a stunningly prepared course.

Congratulations to all who took part and to the organisers who have done such a sterling job in making sure that the day ran smoothly.
