Portrait of Westcounty Racing
Portrait of Westcounty Racing
  • Description

A Portrait of Westcountry Racing goes in front of and behind the scenes at four West country race courses:Wincanton,Taunton, Exeter and Newton Abbot, to show the people and horses who work so tirelessly to make the race days a success.

The book traces the journey that a racehorse makes from foal to retirement and looks at the characters of Westcountry racing: the owners, trainers, breeders, course officials, jockeys, stable lads and lasses, bookies and race goers.

Equestrian photographer Fiona Crawford captures the essence of the region’s characteristic meetings, the months of hard training culminating in a day of pounding excitement, in this supremely colourful portrait of the Sport of Kings –Westcountry style.

Fiona Crawford is completely driven by a desire for perfection in her work that is only matched by her appreciation and understanding of the athletic grace of the horse and its power to generate affection and emotion in its human counterpart. Even before Fiona completed her degree in photography in 2001 she had decided to specialise in equestrian photography. Fiona wanted to combine her creative nature with all the equestrian knowledge and experience that she had gained since early childhood. She was given her first pony at age four and to the present day she has never been without an equestrian companion.

Fiona is continually building her profile within the equestrian world. Commissions so far have included:The British Horse Society,The Pony Club, Newton Abbot Racecourse, Horse & Hound, Horse Magazine, and the Western Morning News.
