On a blustery day in March, I had the pleasure of documenting a particularly special relationship between Fran and her horse Manny.

The brief was to create a memory for Fran as she was preparing to hand Manny back to his owner who had been loaning Manny to Fran for several years.

Fran has created an album of the images for herself but also wanted to give something to her grandmother who had been very supportive of her love of horses, due to her own history with ponies as a young girl.

This is a small selection of my particular favourites that I hope capture an essence of the magical bond I witnessed and felt, between a horse and his rider.
