Today saw us return to High Cross Equestrian Centre for the first time in several months to photograph the jumping derby. After a slow start, things soon picked up resulting in a reasonable turn out. As always, the show jumping action was fast and furious with several very quick clear rounds.
The jumping derby is a blend of Show Jumping fences and Cross Country fences, in two different arenas. This leads to some confusion for some of the horses as they are asked to jump out of the main arena! There was only one faller during the day’s jumping action – Jenny Smith who was unfortunate enough to be unseated at the fourth jump on the course. The good news is that she was fine after the fall: the bad news is that it was all captured on camera. Sorry Jenny!
For a change, we were fortunate with the weather and the promised rain held off until long after the competition had ended. It was good to see a crop of new faces attending High Cross for the first time. I hope that you had a good time and that you’ll be back again in the future. We photograph most of the events there, so make sure you pop in and see us to check whether you were caught on camera!
The photographs have been uploaded to the show jumping gallery. We’ve recently introduced a new gallery system which gives us much more flexibility. Anyone ordering from this event prior to the 28th September 2011 will receive a 10% discount on all orders over £30. This discount will automatically be applied when you check out.
We will be back at High Cross Equestrian Centre on the Sunday, 25th September to photograph the dressage. Here’s hoping that the weather is good![videoembed type=”youtube” align=”aligncenter” width=”600″ height=”365″ shadow=”shadow-medium” url=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArSNNdL2v7I” id=”0″]
