Hidden Valley ~ ODE | Central Coast Equine Photography

Hi everyone, wow, what a weekend the Hidden Valley ODE was!

The weather was perfect, the horses were stunning and as usual the backdrop of photographing horses at hidden Valley was amazing!!

It’s weekends like this that remind me why I love to do what I do.

As usual with a ODE we started with the dressage phase, in the morning sun-filled valley – beautiful horses danced with the light….

By the time the show jumping started, the sun had really warmed up and this little pet photographer was getting fried!

But just look at all these happy flying horses! It was worth every extra sun kiss (freckles, but Mum always called them sun-kisses)

Everyone had a well earned rest on Saturday night and when Sunday dawned fine and clear it was back out to the valley for cross country…
