TTC CT Jumper Show-09-28-2019

TTC Combined Test & Jumper Show – Saturday, Sept. 28, 2019, at Thoroughbred Training Center(TTC). Photos are posted!

I frequently check with the Secretary Stand during a horse show. They inform me of sign-ups and other useful information. So, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Lynne and Angela who ensure that TTC shows run smoothly. They always impress me as they go about their business . . .

Hillcrest Farms Show 09/14/2019

Hillcrest Farms hosted an HT/CT/D show on September 14, 2019. Thank you, Janet and Dan, for another enjoyable and well-patronized event. Incidentally, I’m sure many visitors appreciated the cooler weather early in the day. In contrast, as I write this, the forecast for the next 10 days going into October, is all upper-80’s and 90’s. So much for cooler days . . .

But later on, conditions were supposed to clear and become much hotter. Consequently, a cut-off time was set for 2 pm. As expected, the riders were able to complete the Combined Test portion and the first half of the Jumper show before the cut-off . . .

Hillcrest Farm Show 07/10/2019

Sometimes I find an arena course difficult to photograph because of the placement and angles of the jumps in relation to the sun. Consequently, I have to move around a lot, to avoid harsh shadows or to get a good view of the various jumps as the rider proceeds around the course. This event was different. Not only because of soft light from the scattered cloudy weather, but also the placement of jumps allowed me to stand almost in one spot to capture images at four or five different jumps . . .
