I am preparing for the 2013 Mid Atlantic Friesian Classic Horse Show held in Fairfax, Virginia on April 27, 2013. As show photographer I will be in the ring and around the arena capturing the events in photographs for the participants.
The horses will start arriving on Friday April 26 so they can practice and acclimate to the facilities at Frying Pan Farm Park near Herndon, VA. I will be on hand to catch some of the practice and behind the scenes activity prior to the event. Then on Saturday the events will run all day, with dressage, trail riding, halter events, walk-trot-canter, and more. The focus is on the Friesian breed, distinctive for their beautiful dark coat.

There will be liberty events, in which the horses are allowed to run free. This can be quite exciting to watch. And there will also be costume events for the riders to showcase some very fancy and creative designs
As this is my second time photographing this event I am looking forward to seeing many familar faces as well as meeting new people in the Friesian world. This will surely be an exciting show to see! For more information or questions please contact me: Jim@jimprophoto.com
