Well thought I would have a go at something different.
This is Lily a pony at the stables my daughters go to.....she was let out into the arena to let off steam and I tried some shots of her.
Not easy as I found out trying to get a pony in focus when its running full tilt.

This is taken at F11 1/350sec Focal length 300m ISO400

I used the aperture priority this time on the camera but that pulls the speed down and its hard to get them in focus.
Any advice would be a great help.

Thanks for looking

Nicely caught action. I would take a manual reading off something light grey (or grass is fine) that is in the same light as the horse and only use auto focus. If the dof is very shallow focus on the head. If it's deep enough then focus on the shoulder. If the horse is coming towards you then you'll need a higher speed; if the horse is running past and side-o n then you speed isn;t so critical, but you need to pan i.e. follow the horse. This will blur the b/g and give a nice impression of speed
