This was a new venue for the Ludlow to run a fun ride and almost 100 riders turned up to enjoy the day. Riding through a beautiful landscape in the sunshine is hard to beat, though there was a light shower later on. Pictures are now available in the Shop area.
Yesterday Jo & I covered the Wheatland Hunt Pony Club Show at Valley View, Broseley. The rain held of till later in the afternoon and lots of little people had a great time. There were various activities from Show Jumping to Fancy Dress and Handy Pony. Photographs from the event are now available in the Shop. If you have not already registered, you will need to do so to view the images.
Once again, it was raining at Tenbury, though this time it was only in the morning and the ground stayed dry. As usual there was a huge variety of things going on from the horse show to the livestock judging and parades of vintage vehicle and a motorbike stunt team. Lots of local and not so local traders had their stands and most seemed to be busy. We had a good day with three of us covering five rings and while it is inevitable we miss some folks, we did manage cover most of the horse classes. The photos are now live in the Shop section, follow link above, and here is a small selection for your enjoyment.
This was my second visit to Hay Show, set in lovely parkland a mile or so outside of Hay on Wye. It was a much better day this year with no rain and the turnout was very good. Lots of things going on in lots of rings, so sorry if we missed you as we can not cover it all, even though there were two of us taking pictures. Maybe next year as we are already booked do come again.
The photos are now all available in the Shop area.
We had a very busy and long day at this event. The weather held for most of the day, though some of us got a bit wet later in the afternoon. Riders started jumping at 9.00am and the last one to jump was at 6.20pm. The indoor school classes were pushing the camera to the limit with the low light levels, and the very best low light camera available was being used in there. The photographers on the day were Pete Thorp (Indoors), Jo Martin (Int round 1 & Novice round 2) and myself (Novice round 1 & Pre-Novice). This was the biggest event Jo has photographed at to date and I think she did a first class job.
Anyway, all the photos are now online for your view and purchase, just navigate to the Shop section and follow the instructions if you have not already done so.
