In recent years Blenheim Palace Horse Trials has been organised by British Eventing and the event photography split between two companies due to the number of things going on.
Working for E. S. Photography, and subsequently 1st Class Images when they merged I have been covering the three days of arena eventing. This year, however, with The Jockey Club taking up the reins, we were instead charged with photographing the two days of competition for the retraining of racehorses in the arena next to the main eventing one.
The RoR classes finished on Friday but because I was shooting a wedding elsewhere in Oxfordshire on Saturday evening there was little point in going home in between. Instead I cam back to Blenheim on Saturday morning to photograph some of the riders I support who were competing.
