Winter Equestrian Festival – Wellington, FL

Today I took my daughter to the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington. Lexxi has been riding for years, and while she doesn’t get to ride or compete as much as she would like, she does love going to watch the competitions. The weather was absolutely perfect…beautiful South Florida weather that we so love…just warm enough, blue skies, and lots of sun (& sunscreen!). Now, I have to admit that equestrian photography isn’t exactly my area of expertise. But we both brought our cameras and really enjoyed capturing some great shots. We actually saw Beezie Madden, an Olympic winner, competing! She was fabulous! Being busy shooting helped keep us from thinking about feeling too hot or thirsty…all in all, it was a great afternoon. If you want to learn a little bit more about the schedule of events, check out this link: Winter Equestrian Festival. Here are a few shots from our lovely afternoon. Hope you enjoy them!

Yeah…a little lens envy here. Not the ideal lens for shooting weddings, but awesome for equestrian riding. At least it’s a Nikon!

Next is a series of photos from the beginning of the jump to the end…pretty cool to see exactly how high these horses & riders are jumping!

    Listen…I think you should sell that photo of the boots. That’s a great pic for printing. I know of tons of equestrian types that would buy it!
