#goeventing at Area IV’s Queeny Park Horse Trials

While we focus much of our attention on major international events here at EN, we also love to pay homage to local events all around the country through the lens of the hardworking show photographers. This new #goeventing photo recap comes to us from St. Louis, MO, where the staple Queeny Park H.T. ran earlier this month. This event welcomes events from all over Area IV, its unique cross country in a public park setting drawing entries for years on end.

Fun fact: this was my home event growing up — I actually grew up riding at the barn directly across from the barn, formerly known as Town & Country Equestrian Center. Ah, the golden days.

This year’s official photographer for Queeny Park was Jamie Sweet, who has graciously shared a few of her favorite shots from the weekend with us. If you competed at Queeny Park, be sure to check out your own photos and order from Jamie here. You can also give Jamie a follow on Facebook and Instagram to keep up with her work.
