Last weekend at the Oregon Horse Center they hosted an indoor eventing show. Sans the dressage portion of eventing. I really don’t know much about eventing or show jumping. I just know it’s cool to watch, I never want to do it and it’s lots of fun to shoot.
I was struggling mightily with my camera in the low light of the arena and the fast movement (blurry photos, me getting irritated) so my photographer mentor handed off her camera to me and I had an absolute blast. I’m a big believer that the clothes don’t make the woman, but I’m pretty sure in this case the gear made the photographer. My saving grace is all the post processing is completely my touch.
Please enjoy some photos jumping ponies from this fun event and amazing course that the crew at the Oregon Horse Center put together.
I love the look of this guy. Big, beautiful, bay. The three b’s.
Weeeee! Look at that length!!
Dublin boots abound. I cropped out the part showing them all on their phones, ha ha.
Don’t you just love the look of boots and breeches?
