    My only real beef with this one is that, the angle is sooooooo blah, I don't know what I was thinking :wink: But I love the feeling the facial expression gives me so it kinda balances it all out. :)

    I agree - the first and second ones are my faves. Keep taking pics of the horses. You will find that the more you do it, the better you will be able to predict their movements. :)

    I was having a few problems predicting their movements, it's some scary stuff to :? . When theres a 1500lbs aniamal running full speed right at you and all you have is a camera in your hands it can be quite intimidating. :shock:


    Thanks for the comments guys :D

    Just a tip, have someone help you by holding a longe whip. Even though you don't actually hit them with it, they respect that you have it. They can keep them at a safe distance (and moving) so you can concentrate on getting the shot you want. If you don't have anyone to help, hang the camera around your neck and hold the longe whip yourself. Before I started carrying the whip in the arena with me, I got lots of lousy pictures of my horses trotting towards me. :D

    Thanks for the tip photogoddess :D
    My mom was holding the whip, but I think I would feel alot more comfortable with your other suggestion. Knowing that I have the whip, and can keep the horse away would be alot more reassuring.

    A little more juggling to do but you will get the hang of it. :D The key is to try to get them more from the front since you will naturally end up at their rear.
