Technically, I think this photograph has been well-taken. The available light suited the subject. Given this lighting, in my opinion, the exposure is very good, especially considering you were photographing a dark subject on a light background. And the focus is on that dark subject.

Artistically, you have done well to limit the depth of field to the main subject, throwing the background out of focus. However, that said, even out of focus, I must admit that the tree behind the horse's head looks to me as though Farah has one hoof on a Van Der Graaf generator, so that the static electricity has made her mane stand on end. Therefore I would have cropped about a quarter off the top of the frame.
