Sussex Equestrian Photography – Horse Portraits with Nicola

Sometimes I just have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming… because I think I have the dream job!

I had a photo shoot with Nicola and her two ponies and had a great time getting to know them all.

Nicola seems to have an amazing relationship with her horses, and I think it shows in the photos. Don’t you just love how these two seem to be in perfect synch, head down, legs mirroring each other… sweet.

Nicola had really prepared for the shoot by scrubbing and brushing both horses to look their best in the photos. And she added the finishing touches just before going out by making their hooves nice and shiny! Talk about attention to detail!

…and then to play!

Meanwhile, Rocky is waiting his turn back in the stables.

He gets the same immaculate care and attention.

Isn’t he just beautiful?! Shiny and gorgeous. In fact, Rocky was so shiny that Nicola was a little concerned she might just slide off his back as she was riding Rocky without a saddle.

Then onto the field…

And to my surprise, Nicola jumped without a saddle! Very impressive!

Nicola’s border collie Jack demonstrated that he can jump, too. And that wasn’t the only trick Jack can do… far from it. Nicola is an animal behaviourist and does dog training, too, and Jack is a testament to her skills. I’ve never seen as obedient and attentive (and happy!) dog as Jack.
