Since we moved to Suffolk from London in 2010, I
hadn't known the English Sheep Dog Trials to take
place in East Anglia, though that may have been
because I just wasn't looking. So it was a great
pleasure to attend Haughley Park in the summer
of 2017 and see the dogs competing against the
clock and the sheep. There were plenty of side
shows as well, like this demonstration of affixing
'flights' to a Suffolk Punch. Often said to have “the
face of an angel and the backside of a farmer’s
daughter”, these gorgeous heavy horses - the
backbone of the countryside until mechanisation
took over - look fabulous in their finery, especially
when pulling a farm cart. Sadly, they can only be
seen in harness now at venues like Easton Farm
Park, near Wickham Market, and at the Suffolk
Punch Trust near Shingle Street, Hollesley Bay. It
is now extremely rare to see a Punch on the
roads, where they were once pre-dominant as
dray horses and the like.
For this shot, I naturally wanted both ends in focus without losing shutter speed to a small
aperture. But it was an easy composite image to make, as the horse was rock steady (I've
actually softened the hands slightly to make the photograph look more real).
