Through the ‘splash’

On the first Saturday of the annual Whipman Play festival in June, the adult rideout sets off from the village.

After a parade through the streets, up to 40 or 50 horses and their riders gallop through the river Lyne at the ford beside the white bridge, much to the delight of assembled onlookers.

I perched myself on a small rock in the middle of the river to get these slow shutter speed pan shots. Got my feet wet but I was quite happy with the results.
