Sapey Mid-Summer Horse Trials

It was hot day last Sunday but there was a good lot of entries for this popular event. The cross country course has been reversed from previous years at looked very good. Lots of solid imposing jumps that rode really well. As usual, we were busy taking the pictures and they are now all online for your viewing. When looking through the galleries, don’t forget to use the ‘favourites’ option to build your own gallery of all your images, from all available events photographed by us.

We have also launched a new print product as seen here. It is currently available in two sizes, 9 x 6 and 12 x 8, and with either a white or black background as shown below. Just follow the instructions when ordering to choose your images etc.

It is a lovely day here, and it is my daughter’s birthday. I managed to drag her kicking and screaming out in the field behind the house to get a few shots. It was just a few minutes of fun.

  • Mandy Reddock - Hi Michael I would love one of those photos of Jo, preferably the one I clicked I liked. Do you think you could do me a small copy and I could update the one I have of her in my bedroom. Many thanks Mandy

  • michael - For Jo’s God Mother, no problem, but I do not know which one you like as they are just looping in a slide show.

Malvern Hills Riding Club

Sandwiched between two days of rain, we were lucky to have not only dry weather, but lovely and sunny too. My team were busy taking photographs of the Team Show jumping on the Sunday and Monday was a day of showing classes and some more show jumping.

Images, if not already in the shop gallery, will be shortly.

Last month I managed to miss doing my Project 10, so as I was in Shrewsbury with my daughter yesterday, I decided it would be a good opportunity to capture another set of ten. Shrewsbury proved a little harder than other places and I had my first rejections, three in all, though one of those was willing to have his picture taken, he did not want a copy and did not want to give his name or it to go on the web, so I passed on him. Oh, and Ollie, please apologise to your dad for his face not being the centre of attention.

Today, colour felt right, so just one black & white. As usual, a big thank you to all my willing subjects.
