I do have to pinch myself sometimes when I’m out on location doing my equine photoshoots at the locations I turn up to and the incredible horses I photograph. Here Debbie had four stunning Clydesdales on her Lake District farm; of which she rides with her friends regularly.
A Scottish breed of draught horse, they’re named after the valley of the River Clyde, much of which sits within the county of Lanarkshire. By the 1970s, the Rare Breeds Survival Trust considered this breed as vulnerable to extinction and although numbers have increased slightly since, the breed is still listed as vulnerable. They are such large but very graceful and handsome giants, who were traditionally used for both farming and road haulage. It was an honour to photograph these special horses. Thank you Debbie.
