how can I improve my horse images to give them more impact

I'll comment on V1 - V2 is a totally different picture and needs to be uploaded separately.
Good timing, first of all. You've captured a satisfying moment here - coming towards you, great action in the hooves, shutter speed fast enough to freeze that action, and an engaging human expression. But it's difficult to comment further on some aspects without the Exif - can you please add it?
I prefer this to your previous upload from the same event, but generally the same problems occur here as were identified then. It needs more brightness and contrast and it needs more space! If this is cropped down from a larger frame, as is often the case with your uploads, I'd like to see that frame; if you zoomed right in, and could have gone a bit wider, then next time you get this opportunity go wider! Particularly with a subject approaching you at speed, you need to cater for the way it will very quickly fill the frame.
I'll have a go at brightening this up a bit, and a Levels adjustment - the dynamic range is a bit limited and the result is flat, two-dimensional. That, I am sure can be improved.
I've uploaded two Modifications - the first just took seconds - added brightness and contrast and a Levels adjustment.
For the second I added a bit more canvas space on all sides. The cloning isn't very convincing but what I think it shows is that a less cramped composition with more space conveys the freedom of movement better.
V3 appeared while I was working - it would be better to stick to one image at a time.
Moira speaks truly, but this is already a better picture, I think, than the previous similar post.
I think this is both less tightly cropped, and also of a higher overal ltechnical quality.
And - do I recall mirror shades in the last shot? He looks so much better - and more rakish - without!
thanks for crits and mods
