Life on the road – Traveller horse fair, Battersea

I was heading out to join a photography group on Easter Monday when I drove past this. Of course I stopped, parked up and ran back. I took a few shots from the top of the bridge.

Then I asked politely if they’d mind if I got among the horses and photographed them.

This horse fair happens in Battersea every Easter Monday. It’s a chance to meet up for a pint and chat, and to test horses before buying and selling them.
