On a cool overcast afternoon I met Amelia and her mum to capture some photos of them together with Amelia’s boys. We were lucky to get the shoot in before the weather started to turn cold and wet again last week!
Bailey, more mysteriously known as Dark Echo, is a 7 year old connemara cross thoroughbred, and can be a bit of a sensitive soul. He has been with Amelia for a couple of years now, and has come such a long way. They have had their leg waving moments, but after investing lots of time and patience, it is certainly now paying off. He stood like a true gentleman and posed beautifully in front of the camera for us.
They can often be found enjoying the countryside together after recently moving yards to make the most of the hacking! Amelia tells me he also loves a good jumping session, and although they are only jumping small at the moment, she has big plans to take him out cross country schooling this year. It sounds like great fun is on the cards for this pair.
Also popping into the action at the end of the shoot was Brandy, Amelia’s adorable pony who came down from the New Forest 5 years ago. He’s been in the family for over 20 years, and has the most wonderful cheeky character. At 25 years young, he has enough sass to put some of the younger horses to shame! He has done a bit of everything, and brought Amelia up through the ranks when she was younger, including being a driving pony. He now lives a quieter life (hooning around the field with Bailey to blow away any cobwebs!)
It was a pleasure capturing your images with your mum and your boys Amelia, thank you!
