Good image well timed. I agree with Danh and Campervanman about the cropping. I've also loaded a mod, with square cropping to try and make more of the angle of the horse but means scarificing some of the space for the horse to jump into and blurred the background out quickly (a bit rough round the edges) to give you and idea of the difference it can make.
Well done Fran, its a good effort for someone who doesn't like horses. My comments are in line with Campervanman's although getter lower is difficult with small fences. The other possible improvement could be your positioning, so that the horse and rider are slightly more angled towards you. The rider will often be looking in the direction of their next jump as the go over the current one, or the direction they have to ride in next. After a couple of rounds you can usually identify a good position where you can get a better view of the emotion on the riders face.
