I had the pleasure of photographing Andrea Moffatt the Advertising Director of UK’s best-selling equestrian magazine Horse and Rider.
When I first met Andrea at Pachesham Equestrian Centre near Leatherhead, I was introduced to Blackie, her magnificent 17 year old gelding. Blackie won his Barefoot Rosette that day with a stunning performance in an Advanced dressage test.
Blackie was meant to retire this year from competition as he was constantly ‘footy’, but now that he is doing so well barefoot, thanks to Barefoot South, he is going from strength to strength and recently competed in his first PSG!
Andrea kindly agreed for me to take some more pictures of Blackie and herself near Guilford in Surrey where Blackie is stabled. It was a super sunny day and we had great fun during the equestrian photography shoot with different outfits in different settings. A few of the images taken on the day can be seen below. My favourite image of the day is the one of Andrea wearing her gorgeous dress. Days like this make my job so worthwhile.
