Sponsored Riders - Philip Yale Horse Photographer Cheshire
Emma K. Woolliscroft
Emma's been my sponsored dressage rider for just over a year now since I first asked if she'd be interested in having dedicated dressage photographer in Cheshire and Staffordshire.
She and her stunning mare, Carmen of Westoak, are a very successful dressage partnership, and when not competing Emma is in great demand as a top dressage instructor.
Emma won her first national title at the 2008 Summer Dressage Nationals at Stoneleigh Park.
She has since trained with many of the top international dressage trainers and riders including Dianne Breeze, Matt Frost, Lee Pearson, Amy Woodhead and the legendary Conrad Schumacher.
Emma and Carmen are based at Acton Hall Equestrian Centre in Staffordshire, and you can find Emma's own web page at: Emma Kate Woolliscroft - UKCC Dressage Coach. I've also added some articles about them on my blog page at:
I've known Abby for several years now, and she has, along with her horse Genie, just recently become my sponsored eventing rider, complementing Emma Woolliscroft's role as my dressage specialist.
Abby is a very talented rider, with her own business Abby Jones Equestrian , providing equestrian schooling and competition services, amongst others.
Based in Cheshire, Abby comes highly recommended.
A New Partnership
Abby's previous eventing horse, King Champ, was very special to her, and the two of them were very successful indeed in the eventing world.
I was grateful to have been able to capture some wonderful photos of them both, in competition and as portraits.
Sadly, Champ has had to retire from competitive riding due to injury, so Abby is now bringing on a new horse, Genie.
Genie is still inexperienced, but is showing huge potential, which is very exciting indeed. My goal is to capture the development of Abby and Genie as a team, and to follow their progress over time. The signs are that this will be a very fruitful partnership indeed, so watch this space!
When Abby's not riding, she runs other sport-related events, working very closely with local schools and organising childrens' parties as via her "Everything Sport" business enterprise.
Abby's also a Qualified L2 netball coach, so you can start to see that she's not someone who sits around doing nothing!
