Royal Windsor Horse Show-A jewell in the Equestrian Calender

Last year I wrote about Royal Windsor Horse Show and how much I enjoyed it. This year I was unsuccessful in my media appplication so I had the sulks and had missed the early bird tickets. Thanks to Facebook though I suffered serious FMO and hatched a plan with 21st Century Rider to go for an early morning jaunt.

Nicola and Choccywoccydoodah: An Equine Portrait Session in Kent

 

No, I haven’t gone mad and dedicated a blog post to chocolate. Choccywoccy is in fact a gorgeous Dun Gelding who happened to win my Equestrian Stockholm Giveaway over on the Facebook page.

A Kent Portrait Session: Sunshine and Sassy Ponies

Brooke had contacted me a while ago (nearly a year!) but due to weather and unfortunate accidents with horses we had struggled to get booked in. Even on the Friday before the bank holiday we had made a plan that then got scuppered by her other half needing rescuing. I think both of us thought her equine shoot may never happen…but it did. Bright and early on the Bank Holiday weekend.

A Kent Equine Portrait Session: Gemma and Tavish create a Woodland Fairy tale

Last year I missed the bluebells so this year I was prepared and got some lovely ones of Margaux looking her normal stunning self, but I was keen to get some horsey ones. Model calls are a great way to build up a portfolio in the less popular months and also allows the photographer, me, a bit more of a free rein. So, when Gemma responded to a post volunteering her services I snapped it up with a Woodland Fairy Tale in mind.

S is for Spring- A long winter

Well hasn’t it just been a very long winter. I hate fact that yet again I’m typing that’s it been a while since I last posted blah blah, but truth be told there’s a couple of reasons for this. First up it won’t have escaped your attention that it has been one of the greyest and dampest springs for a long time.

Now despite many people declaring how busy they are on Facebook and how the winter is just as pretty as the summer I just don’t buy it. It cold, its wet and everyone is struggling to get out and about on their ponies. Being a fairly honest straight talker means that I’ll say it how it is. Business is pants at the moment. Pretty epically sparse and rubbish.

Frog and Field visit Baskervilles: A Canine Friendly Coffee Shop in Kent

Blimey I have got rather behind with the blog and truth be told I’ve still not posted the blog post I intended too. Currently pondering over them and debating if they will ever see the light of day. Instead I’ve gone for a light-hearted and jolly post all about Baskervilles, a wonderful dog friendly coffee shop in Kent.

Getting to know: Nicola Bell-Hoggy’s Better Half

I had my second session on Hoggy with Nicola Bell at Sparrows Oast during the week. He is really rather helpful and I do feel like my riding has improved just from the few sessions I have had with him and also June Long. Trotting in balance is still rather challenging but I’m telling myself it’s like learning to ride all over again. So, I need to be patient.

Snow Day: A Yard Day Photoshoot in Kent

I’ve named this post a ‘Snow Day: A Yard Day Photoshoot’ in Kent but in reality, it was a number of sessions that built up and gathered momentum. The snow (Beast from the East) has been both a blessing and a curse for us animal lovers. One thing is for sure though it’s created lots of wonderful connections for me.
