great ones here, I love Suffolk Punches, but my favorite of this lot has got to be Jesters. I'm afraid the cruelty involved in horseracing has rather turned me off, although I was a big **** Francis fan when I was younger.

OK, the wrapping of the text I just typed on my screen has much to be desired.
Quote: We have some tips waiting for you in the article section of the site then e2 members can upload their horse images here while our free members can upload images into the gallery.
To add to this, EPZ member Neil Murray has an excellent article on his website covering racing photography.
There are also a number of Point to Point meetings around the country which often allow people to get closer to the action at track side and near fences. But please no flash photography , the horses are easily spooked.
For point to points: courses map and remaining 2010 fixtures. If you decided to go to any of the courses in the South West PM me, as I may well be at the meeting.
I have about 8 quillion shots of horses but don't have this in my pf, so thought I'd put it here.
Thanks for the extra information Stephen!
Here's my Gold Cup winner......
sorry - no real horses available......
It made me smile though Alison!
A friendly race horse taken a few miles away from where I live, I don't know if he's run at Cheltenham though!
Looks more like a pony to me Edmund! Not that I'd know for sure but he/she looks fairly dinky
Pretty face though......

They have pony racing as well these days, and just about anything with four legs gets entered there. Although those do tend to lag behind a bit at the finish. Its exciting stuff and often the child has little control over the pony which just decides flat out is the best speed to run at.
That would be fun to watch I did watch some Pony Club show classes once - what tickled me most was the way the mothers all apparently had to dress up - hats and all. I do prefer the out of control stuff - far more entertaining.
That said, I wasn't too impressed when I took a fall from an ex-polo pony - a three day headache and a yanked achilles tendon.......
aaah the horse instructor in me wants to critique the horse not the photo!
oh I can't resist ... shoot me later ...
his ears are a little close set, with a bit of bump between his eyes indicating a slightly stubborn nature, his eye does look kind but is a little small. His nostrils are a little small as his mouth. His head is set on his neck ok but looks a little narrow through the gullet. (interferes with wind / breathing for racing/eventing). His neck is a little short and lacking in muscle development, in fact the muscle that is developed indicates to me that he carries his head a bit high and some work on the lunge would help develop his topline and get his head down. He looks a little narrow through the chest as well again a problem for sports requiring lots of oxygen.
I would love to know his age ... there are indications this is a young horse still growing.
My word, imagine the reaction if you were describing a person
LOL don't go there!!!!
