Had a brilliant time last weekend with the SEA. Got up at 4am on Sat to get down to Newmarket for 6.30am to photograph and sketch the horses on the gallops. The weather was perfect and there were hundreds of horses out.
Then we went to 'Heath House', Mark Prescott's stables where he showed us around and spoke about the horses he'd trained and his training methods. The stables really were something to behold and every little detail had been thought of.
In the afternoon we went onto a Suffolk Punch stud to do some painting (I won't upload a picture of my painting because it was a bit dire!).
On Sunday we went to 'Castle House', Dedham which was Sir Alfred Munnings old home and has been turned into a Museum of his work. It was beautiful and his paintings were stunning. We managed to get 15 mins in the vaults where a lot of his sketches are kept.

In the afternoon we had some horses brought in to paint. Think I've a long way to go!
