Well it's been over a month since my last post so I thought that I should say something.

So what's been happening I here you ask? Well it's been quite busy, lets look at the diary, 

01/06/14, Tadley and District Riding Club having postponed their show jumping event from April due to weather and re-scheduled for 01/06 had to cancel the event because the fields were flooded yet again. I did manage to find a job down in the middle of nowhere with a very nice group of people the Crawley and Horsham Pony Club, it was their Junior show, since as I said it was the middle of nowhere, there was not power so I went alone and just took shots, they sold reasonably well and on the back of that I was invited to do their next show in August (provided that I take my radios again for them to use).

08/06/14 - Simply Shows event at Warren Barn Stables, nice and close, but not very well attended and sales I regret to say were poor. I was thinking that since we had also been booked for their show 06/07, I would see how it went and proceed from there, but more of that later.

15/06/14 - LLJ Equestrian, I was not hopeful of this event thinking that we had been there too much recently, but with Lucy manning the printers and Will and I taking shots, it went very well.

18/06/14 - Trip to Windsor for Photovision roadshow - a waste of time

21/06/14 - Wimbledon Village Fair Horse Show, no power so Georgie and I went an took shots, initially I was not impressed at sales but overall they went well, despite that fact that we left early as Georgie went down with sunstroke.

22/06/14 - We had originally arranged to go to LLJ, Equestrian but numbers for their dressage event were so low it was not worth going, instead Will and I went to Garth Hunt Pony Club Junior Show, no power so shots only. A very busy day although it did finish for us at least about 15:30. nice people again and sales are good.

29/06/14 - Two events today, Lara Georgie and I went over to LLJ Equestrian for showing which went quite well. Will and Aaron went to Claygate and Esher Riding Club dressage. Unfortunately the printer that I gave them got dust inside and they did not know how to clean it, but sales were good despite this, I merely had to reprint most of the stuff and send it on by post on Monday.

06/07/14 - If you have read from the top you will know that we had been booked for Simply Shows "Big" summer show. however I received an email 10 days before stating that they had no entries and that it was not worth my time going. I tried very hard to get a replacement job but failed until early Saturday evening, when it was suggested that we might go over to Lands End Equestrian Centre. We have been there before and I had been hoping to do their spring show but dates clashed and they found another photographer. Initially he had agreed to do the 6th but had not confirmed thus we were called back. What a day, very busy, lovely people and Lucy did her usual and sold lots of prints.
