1.Make sure you horse is a clean and as well groomed as possible. Legs should be brushed and hooves oiled if preferred. Leave them in the night before to stay clean.
2.Clean all tack, head collars, rugs, boots, numnahs, fly bonnets etc. Remember the bit.
3. Clothing should be clean and ironed if necessary and pay special attention to your boots. There is nothing worse than a muddy boot when everything else is immaculate. Hat's, hat silks, jackets, jodhpurs, shirts, gloves,XC kit all looking perfect.
4.Bring treats to bribe! Sometimes this can help with certain shots.
5. Dogs should be well groomed and if possible had a short walk before hand.
6. If your animal has any unique quirks or favourite things to do let me know, we may be able to incorporate these in to your shoot.
7.Make sure they are fed and watered and happy.
8. Try not to let them eat grass before or during our shoot.Theres nothing worse than a grass stained mouth.
9.Obviously animals can be unpredictable so do not worry if an idea doesn't work. We just try something else.
10.I never get stressed and I don't want you to either. Patience is a must with animal shoots and so well worth it.
Theres always a way!
