Eventing blues.   Leave a comment

It’s January and the weather outside is dreak! rainy, cold, miserable.

It’s times like this that my mind turns back to those wonderfully warm (yes, we had some) days of spring and summer last year. My passion is photography and my wife’s is horse riding, so when the eventing season begins we are in sync with each others desire to watch some of the terrific eventing that takes place in the UK.

One of the best local venues is Osberton. Wonderful countryside a quality field of competitors and ample opportunity to photograph rider and animal in action.

It never fails to amaze me just how much trust and confidence the horse has in the rider and the rider has in the horse.
