Whipman rideout

One of the things that annoys my visual senses is when I see pictures of the Whipman rideout coming through the village. Mostly in photographs taken there are vehicles, quad bikes, bright yellow no-parking bollards or folk in high vis jackets, all getting in the way of a good shot.

Being a bit of a purist, I wanted to get a picture that showed just the horses and riders with the Whipman hopefully waving the flag.

I was happy with this image. The pic was done in 1996 in the days when the riders went up Medwyn Road (Golf Course Road). Even the nags at the front have their ears pricked and appear to be looking at the camera despite me being 100 yards away!
