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.

    What a way to bow out of racing! A day I'll never forget as Randwick said farewell to the mighty mare Winx. Thank you for an amazing ride and showing us all what the Sport of Kings is all about.

    About
    Amanda Wood
    Horses have always been a part of my life. Since joining the racing industry first as a pony rider and becoming a photographer along the way, has been a journey rich in action and colourful people. Racing is an incredible family and I feel blessed to be a part of it.

    Need for Steed Australia began in 2012 with a small travel camera taking moments I felt should be captured and shared. With my talented mentor Geoffrey, combined with the support and encouragement of Gai Waterhouse, I was off at a gallop and have yet to pull up!
