EVENT PHOTOS   West Bar Photography
Photos at shows and photos and videos of dressage tests have been taken at most of our events this year by John of West Bar Photography.  Covid restrictions have meant that he could not bring his trailer and print on site, but purchases can be made online at www.westbarphotography.co.uk by clicking on Events then on your event to view all the photos. All the dressage tests were videoed in full, but just the first part is available to view on the website.   Printed photos are £7, photos for digital download £5 and videos £8.
