If, like me, you were a horse-lover and glued to the screen during Olympia and Hickstead, you’ll know Geoff Billington, Olympic showjumper…and what a massive character he is. Always up for a laugh he was a complete hoot to watch, and his talent was just as mesmerising.
The yard down the road from me at Hazlehead Hall Equestrian have been allowing me to come and work on my equine art resources site and so I jumped at the opportunity to go and photograph a jumping clinic he was holding there. I learned a huge amount just watching, and he didn’t disappoint! We even had a short visit from his friend (and equally talented showjumper) John Whittaker.
