This week Tina has given us the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #129 of Favorite images of 2020. So I shall go backwards through the year of 2020 starting with this winter season.
After a relaxing of some Covid restrictions there was a horse show at Angelstone in September. The show organizer had taken a lot of trouble to make it safe for all competitors. Masks were required at all times unless you were mounted. Distancing ,signing Covid wavers , temperature check on entry to show, and no spectators, were all part of the requirements. Here is my coach Belinda Trussell riding a horse she has in training.
Over the summer I submitted some photos, of the stars of our garden, to Cee’s Flower Of The Day challenge.
In June no one other than staff was allowed to the stable. But once the weather was good enough for riding in the outdoor arena, I could go and from a distance watch my coach Belinda Trussell ride Biasini
In Mid March Biasini and I were Reserve Champions in the FEI Freestyle Division of the White Fences Championship Series. In this photo I am with my Florida coach Lou Denizard. On that weekend the US Equestrian Federation announced all future horse shows would be cancelled due to Covid.
In January this was the sunset at White Fences show grounds. We were all happy to be showing and little did we know what was coming.
