Here’s my final post of my visit to the International Plowing Match, held last weekend in Chatham-Kent (C-K).
I arrived at the arena after the Canadian Cowgirls, an equine demonstration team based in C-K yet appears across North America, began their performance. The crowd had already pressed up close so I was at the back and shooting blind, holding the camera as high as I could reach and pressing the shutter button. The breeze was briskly blowing, challenging the riders’ ability to hold their flag steadily while also riding their routine.
It was a moving performance. A lover of horses and teamwork, I was a bit misty eyed at the end.
