Firstly I would just like to say thank you to everyone who has offered us support this year. I am now taking bookings for events in 2017, so if
anyone would like to get in touch please email firstname.lastname@example.org as our calendar is filling up rather quickly!
2016 has been a turbulent year for us. There has been so many farewells said, and equally as many new beginnings..
The first of which of course was our acquisition of the amazing Mirvanda, the traveling photo-booth (much easier.. and drier!! than our previous tent set up!)
The Vyrnwy Valley Showjumping at Radford's was our first event of the year... and the Van's waterproof capabilities were certainly put to the test!
The set-up proved successful, and with that we were ready (and I very nervous!) for our second event of the year: Eyton on Severn Point to Point. This was most likely the most high profile event that we had covered up to that point, and one that is very close to my heart, so it was important that all would run smoothly.. Which it did of course until we came to leave and found ourselves well and truly stuck in the mud!!
Brampton Bryan and Bitterly Followed in quick Succession, with The South Shropshire meet at Eyton too!
Highlights for me included the pony racing, and the Hunt Scurry... fabulous.
The Arrival of Spring Brought with us some sad news, Prescott Equestrian was to close. Prescott had been my 'home' both with photography and horses, and I'm sure the loss has been felt across all of the local horsey community :'(
On A brighter note, by April, our first fun ride of the year was upon us! Apley Farm Ride had a huge turnout, and for the first time all year the weather stayed clear and dry. (note: it's important to test the fences out yourselves before the horses come through!!)
Between Spring and Summer, we photographed many events.. including some at Berriewood, Rhos Farm, and S&G equestrian where we spotted Thomas, a past Prescott pony looking so beautiful and happy in his new home.
We Then Found ourselves a little far from home at Plas Uchaf hunter trials..
Which led on to another couple of fun rides at Upton Magna and Rudge Riding!
Time for our summer showing season! Rhydycroesau, Anglesea, Llansillin, and the High Horse Showing association to name but a few!
The Shrewsbury and District Riding Club hunter trials at Berriewood was yet more fun.. we had a beautiful day...
Pony Club Showjumping at Rodbaston was all good fun..
Kelsall Hill's arena eventing was a surprise addition to our calendar!
And with that our last funrides of the year: Larden Grange, The Wyre Forest and the Winter Farm Ride at Ranton bought our year to an end.
Merry Christmas, and a Happy new year, With love from May, Heidi and Paul :D We hope to see you all out and about in 2017!!!
