Sponsored Point-to-Point 2017!
The sponsored Point-to-Point has been a long time family tradition held at the Easingwold Point-to-Point. I love horses, I love betting and I love family. Add a baby and it's my perfect day!

I got a new camera so let me know what you think of the video quality. Personally, I really like it. I also like the quality of photos. I'm still playing with it and the settings but any feedback or tips is greatly appreciated. I got the Canon PowerShot SX610HS!
I took so many great pictures!
It was a little breezy but I curled my hair and although it takes 10 times as long to curl as it does to straighten or leave it natural, I don't mind if it get's messed up because I think it actually looks pretty with wind-inspired curls. Also, side note, did you see my sunglasses?! Correction from the vlog, £5.99 from H+M!
Of course, the main event is the actual racing. Point-to-Point is a traditional country race that involves both jumps and periods of racing. A large part of this course goes out of view which is a bit of a shame but there are no jumps in that section so it's not as action packed.
I took most of these photos on my phone just because I wanted a fast shutter speed to get the perfect shot and I did want to risk the camera failing, having not yet played with it.
I just love horses and I love watching the whole thing. After the race, the top 4 of brought into the arena while others are taken to the arena. The horses get congratulated and rewarded with water to drink and a cool down wash. How amazing is this picture!?
Of course, one of the big things about this Point-to-Point is that it is the one that my family sponsor. We sponsor the David Westwood Memorial Race in memory of my grandad and it was so fun. My Uncle and I went in to judge best turned out, albeit his wife came in and took over. Then the prize giving after the event. This year my cousins and their mum did it but we tend to alternate. Next year is my mum, sister and mine's turn!
