A few months ago I had a very lovely conversation with Alan, a man clearly wanting to give the girl in his life, Polly, a present he knew she’d love… pictures of her beloved Thoroughbred heartthrob, Archie. We hatched a plan together, he presented the gift and then this summer I got to meet Polly, her [...]

One of the first really horsey people I met when I first moved to Somerset was Alice, she answered a plea for help with something and since then we've become good friends.  Having already photographed her Connemara gelding Paddy last year I was utterly delighted to be able photograph the old pony she's pretty much had [...]

There comes a time in every pony mad child's life when things inevitably change.

Hello all!   I’m aware that I’ve not really been active in this area for a few weeks. My apologies for this. It’s really not because I’ve had anything to say or anything going on either. There’s a whole bunch of things happening for me right now, some quietly building, others coming to a conclusion and lots [...]

My freelance season is over for another year.  Much like last year it ended where the season began, at the same venue… only this year that venue wasn't Bicton Park in Devon, but Pontispool Equestrian Centre in Somerset.  Weird how this same basic situation has happened two years on the bounce!! So, what have I learnt [...]

In this continuation of my Grateful Thanks! series of blogs, I look back on August and discover that this month proved to be full of crazy opportunities and moments that made me completely thrilled for other people, not just myself...
