Today I got another chance to do some equestrian photography as last week my sister found a horse to replace Supplejack, her eventer which retired after Chatsworth a few months ago. Her new horse is called Gorgeous George IV which she rode for the first time on Wednesday and as he was already entered into the competition at Salperton Park this weekend she decided to ride the Dressage and Show Jumping phases and just ignore the cross-country as riding an Intermediate XC course on a horse you have never jumped a cross-country fence on is not exactly recommended!

The day went well considering that it was only the second time she has ridden the horse and she got a decent dressage score and while the show jumping did not go that well, it was also not a bad round especially considering how many others were having poles down. I am really looking forward to documenting the progress of Katherine and her new horse throughout the summer as she does her first few novices to get to know her horse before upgrading to Intermediate before the season ends.
