A pony and rider photo shoot in Cheshire

Liberty with Friar & Casi // A Horse & Rider Photo Shoot // May 2017

Nov 12, 2017 | Horse and Rider Photo Shoots

On the same morning of working with Becky and Sulwyn in May of this year I also had the pleasure of doing A Horse & Rider Photo Shoot with Liberty and her two favourite ponies Friar & Casi  who although they are owned by Becky and her sister Charlie have been ridden regularly by Liberty over the past few years and she has developed a very close bond with them both.

Sadly Liberty’s legs have somewhat outgrown Friar and Casi and the arrival of a loan pony from Ireland has led Liberty somewhat away from Friar and Casi but she was determined to have a horse & rider photo shoot with them to celebrate all the good times they have had and have photos to treasure them with. I think the only other option for Liberty and her amazingly long legs would have been to incorporate rollerskates into her riding of Casi and Friar!

Liberty was great to work with and had a very clear idea of what she wanted from the shoot. After a somewhat worrying looking forcast we moved the shoots to slightly later in the day and ended up having the most beautiful afternoon for them! Flexibility is definitely a prominent theme throughout all of my shoots!!

Becky and Liberty had got the ponies squeaky clean (I would be happy to eat my dinner off any pony Becky prepares for a photo shoot she gets them so clean!!) Liberty had some great outfits and the sun was shining! We had a great morning and ended up with a fantastic collection of images of Liberty and the adorable duo of Casi & Friar!
