EQUESTRIAN:- Capturing the character

At the end of December I spent the day with Jade Knight as she photographed my team of horses. Although only 17 years old, Jade is already an experienced equestrian photographer and it was great fun to try out some different settings and techniques to get some stunning results.

The photos she took of my 4 horses were not only beautiful and captured their unique characters but it was obvious in her patience and kind way with the horses how much she loves what she does.

Here are some of my favourites from the shoot……

Jades love of horses started around 4 years old when she first began riding. By 9 yrs, she had persuaded her mum to purchase her first pony and due to her mums reservations about Jade taking up cross-country, she found the showjumping route and was soon hooked.

Photography became a big part of Jades life early on when she and a friend started an instagram account documenting each day with their ponies and she would photograph and produce videos for all her friends to share.

Creating her first website was well underway by 15 years old but sadly getting sick with chronic migraines during her GCSE year meant riding had to take a back seat.

Now fully recovered and back to riding, Jade balances her own horses with college and running her burgeoning photography business and has recently undertaken projects for equestrian fashion brand Holland Cooper as well as working with UK stable Oakingham Stud at home and international shows.
