Helping out at the Bignell Open Hunter Trials

gareth Event, Other

Sunday 9th April saw on of the hottest days of the year so far, and I was helping out another event photographer, Simon Coates, at the Bignall Open Hunter horse trials at Bignall Park farm near Bicester.

This was a more relaxed day than some events that I’ve covered recently, and it was great to watch the competitors progressing round the course to the jumps that I was covering for the day, and the event had the bonus of excellent commentary. Another bonus was the breeze that rippled across the higher ground wheer I was stationed meaning that I wasn’t completely frazzled at the end of the day.

Here’s a few of my highlights. All the photographs form the day can be found on Simons’s site
