Since we’re still in quarantine, we asked all photographers of Equnews to select their three favorite pictures and to tell the story behind them. Today it’s up to Lotte Magnus who has been photographing for the website under the name of ‘Studio Magnus’.
“To start with, I would say that I don’t consider myself a real photographer”, Lotte laughs. I just take pictures of things I like 😉
Derin Demirsoy – Waregem Horse Week
The first picture I picked, was made during Waregem Horse week. The young Turkish rider Derin Demirsoy won the CSI5* Grand Prix there and he was over the moon when it happened. He was also really thankful to his horse, which I think this picture shows. I still remember him asking me if he could have to picture because he liked it so much. I was over the moon! Not bad for a ‘hobby photographer’ like me (laughs).

Goodbye Winningmood – Paris
The second picture I picked, was made in Paris, during the final of the World Cup. Luciana Diniz’ Winningmood said goodbye to the sport there and it was just such an emotional moment. You could see that the horse really enjoyed being in the ring one more time, galloping his way into retirement. I’m really happy that I could be a part of that experience.
Nayal Nassar – New York
The last picture I picked, is one from Nayal Nassar winning the speed class in New York. At first: it was my first time ever in New York so that’s a great thing to start with, but I still remember this class and this victory. I think Nayal was the last riders to enter the show ring and the time of the rider in the lead was so fast already, nobody thought Nayal could go even faster. But… He did! I was over the moon and was clearly very pleased with his horse, pointing at him after finishing.
