The thundering hooves, jostling crowds, roaring punters, straining muscles of horse and
jockey, exuberant winners and crestfallen losers. All the sights and almost the sounds and
smells of this great sporting institution are captured in over 140 supremely evocative
images of point-to-point in the Westcountry.
Husband and wife team Lisa and Shanan Leigh have gone to the very heart of the sport to take
shots which are at once candid, sympathetic and exhilirating. They have travelled the length and
breadth of the South West – which many regard as the true home of amateur jumping – to
photograph a complete season in the point-to-point calendar.
This remarkable book is as close as you can possibly come to standing on the course without

in April 2004 and in 2005 launched their
extremely successful portrait and event
photography business Total Leigh. This is their
