I’m Tanzy (a nickname associated with the surname ‘Lee’ from my days in the Royal Navy), I am originally from Leicestershire where my passion for horses started. I subsequently moved to Somerset and eventually Dorset during my 27 years in the Royal Navy. I’ve always been a keen photographer and I was lucky enough to combine this with the love of horses when my children started to ride. I remain an amateur photographer but hopefully the years of practice are now baring fruit and I can produce some decent shots. More recently I have been lucky enough to have year round opportunities to photograph horses with 7 months of Eventing followed by 5 months of Hunting. I thoroughly enjoy photographing both and get a huge buzz when I manage to capture a really good image. But of course the greatest thrill is when I know that those that star in the photos, or anyone associated with them, love their photos. I am looking forward very much to covering the South West for Eventing Worldwide this season. I wish all the competitors a safe season and the best of luck.
Andy Wells – Gaston
Originally from London, Andy previously played semi-professional football until injury ended his career. He was introduced to equestrian sports by his girlfriend Sarah with little knowledge of eventing.However, after attending his first Badminton Horse Trials in 2014 he was bitten by the eventing bug. As well as supporting Sarah at her own competitions, with a keen interest in photography he is building a new career away from the pitch behind the camera. As part of the Eventing Worldwide Team he’ll be out on course at local British Eventing competitions and capturing behind the scene photographs at major competitions.
Sue will be covering as many events in the Eastern region as she can. Sue has loved and been involved in eventing since she was 13 years old which was a very long time ago. She cut her competitive teeth in the Easton Harriers Pony Club teams alongside an alumni including Debbie Edmundson, Madeleine Lloyd-Webber, Johnnie Gooderham and Melanie Gurdon who all went on to compete successfully for Great Britain. Then progressed to BHS horse trials as it was then, and had tremendous fun with her project horse, Second Time Around, who, despite advice given after the first twelve months to “sell him as a showjumper as he’ll never do dressage and he’ll kill you cross country” went on to upgrade to Intermediate with four straight wins at Novice level! Sue also had some success with two very different mares who both won points at Novice level and now has a gelding, Jerri, who is a huge character. After spending the last five winters hunting with the now defunct East Anglian Bloodhounds (including a few stints as Fieldmaster), he is now planning a return to competition after they both decided he wasn’t really cut out to be a field ornament. In her spare time, Sue works as an IT project manager in the energy industry.
Felicity is from the Wirral in the North West where she has lived and been involved in horses all her life. She started riding at a young age and progressed through Pony Club and BE as a teenager before taking time out for university.
Photography started as and still is very much a hobby for Felicity. When she was horseless for a short time she would take her camera along when watching friends or fence judging at events and this is gradually helped her to improve and get exposure. More recently Felicity has had images published in local magazines and newspapers which she takes great pride in seeing.
Felicity really looking forward to being involved with Eventing Worldwide and meeting new people, and hopes to attend as many events in the North West as she can. As well as photographing, this year she plans to be back out eventing with her new horse, Rathfee Freebie or Seb to his friends. You may well see her trying to multitask with a horse in one hand and a camera in the other! I wish everyone a safe and successful season.
My love of equestrianism & photography both started from a young age, my neighbours were point-to-point trainers and I would head off in the lorry with them to groom and take photos of their horses racing.
When not behind the camera, I am found indulging my other eventing passion which is fence judging, a brilliant adventure that has made me some lifelong friends & taken me to places I’d only dreamed off when I started out a few seasons ago.
I have always loved photographing eventing, but it was after I won Horse & Hound’s Eventing Photography Competition last year & went to Badminton on a press pass that I started to dream that I could make this more than my hobby one day. I’m really grateful to Eventing Worldwide for the opportunity and hope to meet you all out on course this season.
