I was recently commissioned to photograph South Hill Farm’s Fun Day in Ingatestone, Essex. This is one area of photography that I hadn’t experienced upto now so I relished this challenge. The weather was kind and I spent several hours in the arena with these beautiful creatures and their fearless riders.
The day started early with the ballet like Dressage Competition
Next there were several classes of Showjumping. This was a great form of exercise for me jogging between jumps without distracting horse and rider to catch the best action shots.
I did capture a few falls and spills, ironically the riders love these shots as much as the action ones – go figure …….
The final event was ‘Chase Me Charlie’, I can honestly say I was a nervous wreck ! It’s a knock-out high jump competition for horses and boy was it high. Emily was the overall winner.
I finished the day with a few mini portrait sessions
