    Woo Hoo! I was thinking of this as well - but didn't get organised.
    Thanks Wendy

    Great thinking, Wendy! Here's one I took last week. This girl lives at the barn where my mare is boarded. She's about 14.3HH and is just so pretty and ladylike. From a distance, she looks like a gray, but she is really a roan.

    Wonderful Belgians! Great job of capturing their colour so accurately in "The Grass is Always Greener".

    Yay, I knew I could count on you Myra. Beautiful shot of a beautiful animal. Does she by any chance have some Arab blood. Just wondering because of the size and she has a bit of that Arab looking face.
    Very nicely presented BTW, I love the border with the title.

    Thanks for posting, hope to see more, they dont' even have to be new ones

    Here are some from our most recently held competition
    It is tricky to get Horse/Rider & aspect all the way you want them at the 1 time - but I have fun trying.

    Those are great competition shots, Kay! You're right; it's tricky to get everything to come together. Are any of your children?

    Wendy, I'll ask her owner. She seems to have Arab with a touch of something else as the dish and refinement are not quite what you'd expect.

    Here are two more I took a few weeks ago. The head shot is of a Standardbred mare who raced for a year or so before becoming a saddle horse and the second is of a part Clyde gelding and his mixed breed pasturemate. They almost look like bookends from a distance

    Nice ones Kay, I can't get over how much work must go into keeping these show horses all spit and polished. What level are the horse and rider in #2 competing at. It's a pretty professional looking pair. All the riders look so quiet and the horses so alert. Great shots.

    Re: Post your Horse Shots Here

    I really like #1 Myra. I used to help some friends of mine with their Standardbreds, I found they could be quite goofy at times, I see this mare is no different. Now that's a great portrait

    I have a real soft spot for horses at rest, the pasture shot is very nice. I see what you mean about bookends.

    Thanks for posting, I hope you are right and we get lots of horses in here. I know they are out there...

    Nice take off shot, Antonio! Having become a lens obscessive this summer, could you tell me what lens and shutter speed you used (if you still have the info) for this shot? It is so very crisp and bright. Look at how you have frozen the dirt by the back hooves. Spain and Portugal have traditionally been home to some wonderful horse/rider teams. The spread on that jump is not common to our shows in N.S. There are four jumps together, here, but your horse looks like she is going to clear it easily.

    Great work everyone. Wendy, my fav is the third shot. The grass is always greener on the other side!

    I think this may be my only horse photo...

    Thanks Eric, that is a unique angle and it works. I'll bet he/she is turning around to come over for a close up (as in face in lens) You must take some more. You need to have more than one horse shot. It's mandatory

    Re: At the Races

    hey, those aren't pussy cats. Great shots Ron. The action shots are probably the best and the most difficult to take, but I'm partial to #1. I didn't expect horses from you, Thanks for posting. Are these taken with the new 18 - 300mm?

    Thanks for your kind comments Wendy. Yep, it was the new lens ... I tried many variations of A, S, M and other settings and ISO etc just to get a feel. I was rather pleased with the results, especially the optical stabilisation of the lens ... must get a mono pole to make things much more stable Overall I shot 150 pics, dumped a lot but a lot of nice ones still to have a go at. Also some skydivers at the 'races' but these I will use elsewhere.

    First time I have had a serious crack at this sort of 'action' ... I can now understand why professional action photographers age, its a very busy life and quite difficult to worm your way into the better spots

    Thank you Myra for the nice comment.
    I was shooting with a 20D and a 70-200 @ 105mm Aperture priority as most of the times.
    This picture is rather old. I have shot this year event for only a couple of hours...

    I don't know anything about horses. It looks you do ...

    Myra, I think you are going to appreciate these jumps
    Look at the guy's face I should have cloned the flag behind.
