I visited Emily at her wonderful yard in Ottery St Mary, Devon that she shares with her fabulous Mother, Mary King. This was my second trip to this very special yard and already I was made to feel totally at home and involved with the team.
As Dan (Your Horse & Country Magazine publisher) and I arrived Emily, Mary and their fantastic groom Emma were just riding out to tipple the young horses through the local water, thinking we would wait in the car for their return, both Mary and Emily told us to make ourselves at home in the kitchen with the kettle on, and they would return in 20 minutes. The whole team and family are so welcoming.
We spent the day with the King’s and watched their brand new school unveiled, horses worked, quick interviews over the phone with national papers, lunch and a portrait shoot with me in the late afternoon. After arriving at 9am, we didn’t leave until gone 6pm… Opps!
I also fitted in a quick shoot for Fairfax and Favor with Emily sporting 2 pairs of their gorgeous boots.
These images will be seen on the front cover and editorial feature in the next issue of Your Horse and Country Magazine.
Here are just a few from a fantastic day with the King’s.
