This portrait as commissioned by Anthea’s German parents at Dublin Horse Show. Felix and Anthea have had the most amazing journey together the last 12 years. Firstly in Germany and then they both went to boarding school in England where Felix also accompanied.  They have now found their home in Ireland where Anthea is in College and Felix is loving the green pastures and competing. Anthea said “We’ve now found our home in Ireland and couldn’t be happier. We grew up together and formed an unshakeable bond. This kind of strong connection between a horse and rider is rare and I feel very lucky to share it with Felix”

Equine Portraits ‘Vicky & Victor’
September 5th, 2013

Irish Horse Breeders Irelands top award winning equine photograp

This is one of the lovely commissions from Dublin Horse Show of a Father and daughter who both work with young horses in breaking them for top owners and show jumpers in Rhode Co. Offaly. This beautiful avenue of trees was beside their home. I think every stable yard has a terrier as the ‘top’ dog to supervise.

Event Rider Chloe & her eventing horse Matinee

Event rider Chloe and her horse Matinee

Chloe’s Mum asked me to create these portraits of her daughter, an Event rider and her horse Matinee to mark their wonderful 5 year partnership. Matinee was moving to a new family that evening as Chloe is pursuing her College career. She wants to return to eventing once her studies are over.  It was a beautiful evening with gorgeous light and we had lovely grounds around her home to use. I suggested to Chloe we use three different looks a fashion, casual, and Dressage formal. Chloe has a great sense of style and I loved her red dress. I have always loved a ‘frame within a frame’ in my images and the beautiful stone arch immediately caught my eye when I arrived.

Back lighting is my favourite light and I love the way the light catches the horses ears and catches Chloe’s blonde hair

National Dressage Ireland Champion 2012-Kate Dwyer

Dressage Horse & Rider Equine Photography by Ni Riain Photogaphy

Dressage Horse & Rider Equine Photography by Ni Riain Photogaphy

Dressage Horse Reve D’Or and Dressage Rider Kate Dwyer are National Dressage Ireland Champions 2012  and I had the pleasure of creating these portraits at their stables in Dunboyne, Co. Meath. Kate and her Mum Maureen were fantastic to work with and Reve D’Or or “Tito” as he’s affectionately known was a dream horse. He is no stranger to modelling having featured in the Mackey Equestrian Catalogue 2011. I used my Signature lighting to show the stunning confirmation of this magnificent stallion. Kate has an incredible bond with her horse, they were in sync together. It was amazing to watch him watch her every move. I look forward to following their wonderful career ahead.
