The season has barely started and yet our wonderful horses and riders have been featured in the press several times this year already!
Each day, the News in Pictures on the Times website showcases a stunning selection of pictures from around the World. Back in May, our black Lusitano cross Frisian stallion Faraon and rider Daniel Calvert featured in an outstanding image by photographer Charlotte Graham.
The image was captured inside Bolsover Castle’s riding house, which is one of only four original riding houses still in use in the World today.
You can find the original image and feature on the Times website here:
More recently, but again at Bolsover Castle, the English Heritage property in Derbyshire, rider Clive Hart along with his mount Coralito can be seen performing a pesade. This moment was captured by the talented Charlotte Graham earlier this year.
If you are a budding photographer or are looking for somewhere to take the family this weekend, then why not see the horses and riders of Historic Equitation at their next show?
We will be travelling back to the Elizabethan period this weekend at Kenilworth Castle where you will be able to see Coralito and Faraon complete to win the Basket of Arms in front of Queen Elizabeth I. You can find more details on the event here.
