Aske Horse Trials 2009

I was taken with the fact the horse has closed its eyes - I thought it was only the riders that did that (sometimes)

Beautiful equine action shot - a friend of mine had a horse who always appeared to close his eyes when he took a jump - Elizabeth

George I think what we should be trying to achieve is the horses feet just approaching the bar and before they start to head for the ground...the horses feet..not the bar.. The image is pin sharp and the exposure is spot on so at least I have taught you something.

Thanks for the day out It was tremendous and yesterday afternoon was a great bonus. Barry was knackered and apparently ha to go to bed early but he is ok now...I think.

I know what you mean - I do listen honest! But I like the expression of the horse on this one. I've also got other horses as they approached the jump with their legs just reaching the apex of its jump - you're definately right about this being the most dramatic time to capture them.
