Arena Eventing, Muirmill, Ayrshire, Horse Photography

Saturday was the first dry sunny day last week and perfect weather for the Arena Eventing at Muirmill. Laura and Lee (and all their helpers) have worked so hard to get  the outdoor arena ready and build the cross country course on time for Saturday’s competition which attracted over 50 entries. It is fantastic to see Muirmill becoming a top class equestrian venue again. The cross country course looked so inviting that I spent the day wishing I could have a go. Hopefully there will be more Arena Eventing days at Muirmill as from all the feedback I heard on the day it was a huge success.

Here is a small selection of photographs from the day – there are over 400 on the client page on my website (go to Marian McNeil Photography client page – password is Muirmill) where you can order prints, framed prints or canvases.

I also now offer yard shoots and equine portrait sessions so of you would like more details please just contact me and we can discuss your ideas.

Dundonald Show, Ayrshire, April 2012

At the weekend I had the pleasure photographing Dundonald Show and the weather was kind!! Although the wind was cold and blustery the sun kept breaking through and it stayed dry which made everybody’s day so much more enjoyable. Dundonald Show attracts competitors from far and wide and has classes for a wide range of abilities and disciplines. It is so well organised and has a fantastic family atmosphere. Here is a small sample of photographs from the day. There are more on the client page of my website http://www.marianmcneilphotography.co.uk/clientarea – go to Dundonald Show and put in the password Dundonald.

BSPS – Summer Finale at Rowallan

Filed under: Horses — Tags: , , , , , — marian @ 9:55 pm

This week I was asked by a friend if I would mind popping along to photograph her daughter at the Summer Finale being held at Rowallan. And because I had a rare Saturday off from weddings I readily agreed. Their amazing pony is up for sale as his rider has outgrown him sadly – he is a genuine gentleman of a pony (12hh)  who would be perfect for a young rider who is ready to come off the lead rein and compete him and have lots of fun.

And like any professional photographer, when I have my camera I have an almost compulsion to photograph what is happening around me. I hope you like them and if you were competing and would  like to see more images there is a gallery on my client page on my website for BSPS (password is Pony). Here is a small selection from the day.
