” I am absolutely over the moon to have won this competition and what makes it even more special for me is that the winning image features my very own gorgeous horse, ‘Randal’.  There were over 200 entries in this competition and my image was up against some beautiful photographs by professional photographers.  I am extremely proud and honoured to have been crowned Equine Photographer of the Year 2023 by the Training Barn”
