Well I can’t quite believe it. What a treat to be involved in such an occasion. Ok, so having to fly in was also part of the flair and gave the event even more emphasis in my calendar, but really, upon reflection, I’m realising that it was the most unique of opportunities to be involved in such a day.
There were beautiful horses and beautiful people, thundering hooves and chinking of glasses, and not to mention the presence of our very own Queen of England and her comrade Monty Roberts, and some of the most wonderful horsemen from all around the globe. My biggest regret is that my lens was not long enough to devour all those little moments that were happening in the Royal Box and in the sweaty, action-packed moments out on the field. Damn. More kit? Time to review? I think so…
Anyway, I was just honoured to be involved with Satish Seemar and his beautiful daughter Tara – Satish was one of the recipients of the awards – and to witness him in a true moment of glory.
The day has also left me itching to get back in the saddle and gallop. An itch that I must scratch.
