Topthorn Arena is the popular Equestrian Centre, near Stonham in Suffolk. With a large indoor school, they run frequent and well attended competitions.
I went down recently and photographed a dressage competition. As nobody has been able to get their horses out recently because of the snow, there were not the usual number of competitors, which was ideal to run a test shoot.
After adjusting for light levels and movement, got my ‘eye’ in and have attached a few of the results.
I’m happy to say, there was interest in the images taken that day, especially as it was meant to be a trial shoot and was not expecting too much success. So… this Sunday I will be attending again… and there are many more competitors this time.
What I love alongside the photography, is the stories behind the horse and rider partnerships. I feel more blogging material here!
Good luck to all who compete – looking forward to catching some good shots.
Beautiful profile, so willing…
One of the worthy winners!

Finished… with a well deserved thankyou!
