After a wonderful shoot with Nicky back in February, she decided to gift a couple of photo shoot vouchers to some close friends of hers, one being Tricia. So on the most gorgeous Autumnal day, I was invited back to Nicky’s yard to meet up with Tricia and her lovely coloured gelding, Walty.
Tricia arrived at the yard looking ever so glamorous after nipping home to smarten up since bathing Walty that morning. She was dressed in her classy horsey attire, with a navy shirt and jods, and her gorgeous long riding boots. She completed the look with a touch of lippy and was all set to go. Walty walked out his stable gleaming from his bath.
When she decided to ride again after a very long break, unbeknown to Tricia, Nicky knew of the perfect horse already on her yard. On meeting Walty, Tricia instantly fell in love and they now share an incredible bond – Tricia describes Walty as her soul mate! Together they enjoy happy hacking and he’s recently introduced her to jumping too – which they both very much enjoy!
We began the shoot in the arena doorway to capture some studio-like black background images before we made our way round the yard, picking out our favourite natural backdrops. Walty was a pleasure to work with, he would stand beautifully wherever we asked and was a real poser. Tricia was equally as photogenic, and her long dark hair was blowing beautifully in the breeze! We rounded up the shoot with some mounted photos in the field, before we made our way back onto the yard so Tricia could introduce me to her pet cow, Millie!
Thank you ever so much for having me, I had a lot of fun capturing the partnership the two of you share and I’m looking forward to hearing all about your future adventures!
