Horse Event !

 

Yesterday Papa and I went to the horse event at the Saddle Club that we are members of to take more photos ! 

We were going to set up our screen tent but  didn't seem to be very many people there when we got there so we didn't bother setting it up instead we just set up our table with our lap top and extra monitor had our papers with our info and showed the DVD Papa did with his choice of music of the last few events  and let it run whilst we were out taking photos !

Then as the day went on more and more spectators showed up  but only a few riders were there as this time of year lots of the riders have bigger shows to go to ! This Saddle Club just started so its small . Papa and I have ideas we are going to suggest to the club to help them grow , like advertise more  and we can use our photos and get some sponsors on board !

The humidity was awful but thankfully there was a breeze that made it bearable for all !

              He wants  lots of photos from us of his wife , himself and daughter .  His wife who is another good rider wasn't there this weekend !

We had quite a few people stop and watch our photo DVD we had going , they took some of our business cards , that's a good sign and some even want to order their photos !

There are two show rings and as one event is going on they set up the other in the next ring and it goes like that all day ! Papa and I do a lot of walking from one end to the other to take our photos and it’s soo worth it ! I just love watching and photographing these beautiful powerful animals in action with their riders !

Again Papa and I took lots of photos of each event and had a good day and I always get to cuddle a horse or two whilst there   Open-mouthed smile !

Some of the riders I cant show their photos because we haven't yet been able to see if they would like to sign a model release form so we can use their photos ! Next time we will !

             All of these riders , horses and staff are very kind and friendly a great bunch !

                                        It was a great day despite the heat !

                                    Until next time hope you have a good day !
