We had a gorgeous day at the beginning of October for my photo shoot with the lovely Caitlin and her 13 year old Connemara, Earl. Plessey woods was the perfect setting, and the very handsome Earl was turned out to perfection – his grey coat was gleaming and his mane all plaited for the occasion. Caitlin was dressed smart-casual in a shirt, jeans, and long country boots, her gorgeous long hair was half up, half down – they were both certainly photo ready!
Caitlin told me how she has owned Earl for 5 years and he has been a dream horse for her. Having not ridden much previously, Earl had the perfect attitude towards work and taught her the ropes. The two of them developed a gorgeous partnership over the last few years and now enjoy taking part in a bit of everything, from pleasure rides to BE! Their bond shone through during our shoot and made my job extremely easy.
The leaves at Plessey were turning and everything was starting to look rather Autumnal – which is my favourite time of year for a photo shoot! The shoot started up on the top field where we had some pretty overhanging yellow and orange leaves to frame the image, before we made our way down into the woods to play with some different scenery. There were trees, gates, beautiful paths through the woods, and we finished up at a gorgeous setting by the water where Caitlin hopped on board for some mounted photos to round up our shoot.
Thank you for inviting me to photograph you and your handsome boy! It was such a pleasure having the two of you in front of the camera. I hope you like your photos!
