Need For Steed Australia

Equestrian Photography
Many champions have graced the turf at Royal Randwick Racecourse, and perhaps you own or follow a horse. The journey begins here, behind the scenes in the early hours of the day. From track work, to swimming, to time spent in the stables and more, photographing a racehorse during the course of its racing journey is a story in itself.  Take advantage of getting photos during the various stages of its career.

    About

    Amanda Wood

    Horses have always been a part of my life. Since joining the racing industry, my life has become more colourful thanks to the beautiful horses, the amazing and often amusing personalities and the vibrant activity on the racetrack. I owe a huge amount of thanks to those that make it all possible.

    Need for Steed Australia began in 2012 when I was inspired by the action and sights as they unfolded before me on track. These moments I felt should be captured and shared. Determined to bring the images to those of you still curled up in bed while track work takes place has been a journey, but the effort has been worth it. I hope you think so too! Enjoy the moments, the look in a horse’s eye, or maybe even feel like you’ve spent a morning at the track………
