I can’t believe it’s July already! I know we say it every year but where is the year going!? We sadly had a couple of events cancelled at the beginning of June due to heavy rain (hard to believe now isn’t it!). Despite that, it’s been all systems go, covering multiple days at Summerhouse, BHPC Show and Mini ODE, Horse-Events Oxstalls Eventing and Riding Club Area Eventing at West Wilts. As well as all of this, we’ve had a couple of commercial shoots, including for Tractor Ted and TopRide Equestrian Surfaces, a few private shoots, and a wedding in 31 degree heat! Phew!
These couple of months are undoubtedly the busiest in my calendar, but event photography can be seasonal so it’s important to embrace it (and stock up on Red Bull!). July is also Pony Club Camp month for us, and we have a good few to cover! Photographing Pony Club camps is how I got started, so it’s always a special time of year for me.
It’s also been an unbelievable month for my 2 sponsored riders, both qualifying for HOYS again this year; Lila Bremner in the Pony Foxhunter and Pony Showjumper and Bex Mason in the Senior Foxhunter. Both made their first appearances there last year so to qualify again this year is an incredible achievement!

- 6th July – Summerhouse BS
