A verdict of ‘thoroughly enjoyable’ was reached by the nine club members who attended the Skipton Horse Trials on 4 August. Club member Ann Bland had suggested the event would be good for photography and this proved entirely right thanks to Ann’s advice on locations and angles.
It was possible to get releatively close to the jumps with care and following the safety guidance given by Ann and the marshalls. The day was also blessed with ideal weather so low level shots did not lead to wet knees or stomachs and there was good lighting. The on-course refreshments also proved a hit with fish and chips selling particularly well to club members.
