Chatsworth International Horse Trials 2009

Posted in Equestrianism, Family Outings, Sport by Dennis Wright on May 17, 2009

Some pictures I took at the Chatsworth International Horse Trials this weekend. These are all from the cross country event. No show jumping or dressage.

The weather was very changeable – fleeting sunshine would give way to torrential rain in a matter of seconds. I did not fancy the risk of water damage to my camera and took it back to the car out of harm’s way.

These three, of Polly Jackson riding Papillon over one of the water jumps, form part of a sequence on continuous shooting.

Sarah Barker on Diamond Life. Seems to be finding it an exhilarating experience …

Another Sarah, Sarah Thorpe, riding Durlas Aris. I nearly left this picture out, because the horse’s head is partly out of shot. But on reflection, it captures the power and pace of the horse, and the impact on the water, better than any of them.

I believe (based on this) that this is Beatrice Stocks on Toy Story II.
