Another from the Hartpury Festival of Dressage. This is competitor, Henrietta Lacey riding her own gelding, Curaco, in the Intermediare I class. She wasn't placed but I believe it was the horse's debut at this level of dressage. I rather liked how much length of leg he gave the trot.

Cropped close to try to cut out as much of the awful background as possible!

150mm focal length
+1/3 exposure compensation

All comments/criticism/modifications received with interest. Cheers.

nice timing..and beautiful,
to me l wouldnt of placed main point of focus on the whiteness of the leg and white blanket. its resulted in the riders face being underexposed and loses life to the composition, and lost of detail..

nice all the same
