NSW Parra Equestrian Riders at 2017 RDA (NSW) State Dressage Championships & Gymkhana Gala

August 12, 2017

As the weekend was approaching I found myself without an Event to shoot so I contacted The NSW Parra Equestrian Riders group who I had become friends with after photographing their group display at Equifest 2017, to see if they would allow me to attend the 2017 RDA (NSW) State Dressage Championships & Gymkhana Gala over the 12th & 13th of August being held at SIEC. PE organiser Katie Umback member of The Australian Paralympics Team Rio 2016 welcomed my interest and authorized me to attend and photograph members competing at the Championships.

Out of the five members I photographed and videoed their routines I chose the image of Mahazin Golden Shadow with Samantha Hawes on board to be my feature blog post on my website as the horses name definitely suited him as his Golden coat shined radiantly in the main indoor arena on the dark sandy surface and blue skirting walls as he showed off his routine to all watching without missing a step.
