Each year Sassi Photography travels to Hawksbury/Richmond to photograph behind the scenes at the ESH Championships. Emma and her team at Emma’s Show Horses put together an amazing show that is well attended. The work that goes into running this event is enormous and the team is quite small, making it a tight, well-run event with fantastic support and prizes.
This year the event was overshadowed by the nearby RAAF base running various planes in the skies around the event. At one point a Hercules that had flown past a number of times, took a dive towards the Hawksbury Show Grounds and frightened many horses and unsaddled a number of competitors, some of whom were quite young and shaken by the turn of events.
As a lover of aviation, I was torn, but I still did thoroughly enjoy seeing the Hercules VERY close-up!
