Dalkeith Horse Trials 2014

 

Hi Folks,

Here we are again after another event, Dalkeith Horse Trails.  This event was held on the 19th and 20th of April 2014 at Dalkeith Country Park and organised by Central Scotland Horse Trials.

When we were sorting out our calendar this year we noticed this event and since it’s only 45 mins or so from us we decided to go for it as we knew a few friends who were competing so we went to give them some support!

This event like other events is 3 disciplines,  Dressage,  Show Jumping and Cross Country and although Show Jumping and Cross Country are exciting I also like the finesse of the dressage, it’s calm, collected and organised not that I’m saying the others are not but let’s face it, it’s rather….mad?  – in comparison..

I think it goes without saying if you were there or read about this event, it was spectacular.

We met up with friends, had a catch up and also met others as well which is what it’s all about!  One of which was Dave Cameron Photography, we had a good catch up and have sorted our date for Floors Castle Trails.

The whole atmosphere was cracking and it was helped a lot by the superb weather.. yes Scotland does have blue skies after all, funny that 🙂

So as usual we have had to dig through the images to choose our top 10, or 12 in this case, sorry 10 just didn’t do it but it doesn’t stop there..( go to end of post if you cannot wait ) otherwise please enjoy our top 10 images of the weekend.

So you skipped to the end? Go back and have a look after this though 🙂

For a while I’ve been wanting to do an Audio/Visual, slideshow to you and me so I took this opportunity since I did like many of the images to do one as it’s a little different too so I may start doing more of these, but here it is and this is my sign off.  Thank you Dalkeith for a wonderful time over the weekend and thank you to the following for just being superb:

Dave Cameron Photography

A huge WELL DONE to everyone, the riders, the organisers, the stall holders…the list goes on.. Cannot wait for next year already 🙂
