Over the weekend I got to see part of a multi-day USEF-rated horse show at a venue that was built to host the equestrian portion of the 96 Olympics. The grounds were impressive, and there were so many beautiful horses and talented riders. Most of these ladies are currently competing or soon-to-be competing at the regional and national level.
The arena here was enormous - probably cropping a little more than I should be on some of these.
I'm getting more comfortable capturing riders over jumps, but another thing I'd like to do is figure out how to time my shutter press to freeze the motion of different gaits and strides. That's going to take a while to master. I guess I'll just have to keep dragging myself to horse shows month after month. :)
