Emily and Steph, October 2018

This was the MOST fun! Arranging to take 2 girls and their ponies down to the beach for a sunrise shoot with our delegates was the best idea for a shoot on location. What an awesome morning we had. Emily, her pony Smudge and her Golden Retriever Murphy, were joined by...

Sarah and Family, May 2018

This was a real family affair- two sisters, two daughters, a grandchild, 4 horses and numerous dogs, to be precise! The delegates were lucky enough to get down to business and practice photographing multiple owners and horses together at once. This is a real skill,...

Fay and Maria are always keen to model for us here at The Training Barn. They are fab subjects to photograph as they have a great relationship which comes across really well. Having 2 models at one shoot allows our delegates to practice posing the pair together, and...
