Being the official photographer for this fabulous event was an absolute delight. Arriving early to walk the layout of the show rings and to pick up time schedules from the Secretary's tent it wasn't long before Competitors of all ages were arriving and preparing for the day ahead.
And, as the sun finally broke through the early morning cloud, the first classes got underway. Each rider in turn taking flight over the jumps, the poetry in motion that is the dressage and of course, standing proud in the show ring ..... the thrills and spills of the show being witnessed by all, rosettes galore for first time achievements to adding another to the collection, how proud they all are and quite rightly so.
Thank you Wessex Gold Riding Club for asking me to be your photographer today.
