Over the sticks

Posted by

The chestnut is a horse that my sister and her friend bred and trained, she now races him in Point to Point races although does not ride him herself. I took this when they were training him together with the grey in the shot who is owned by a friend of theirs.

Canon EOS 60D 1/1000 second F/5.0 ISO 800 31 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

A great shot, Doug --- I always admire people and their horses (because I am afraid of them !!) - I have never been harmed by one but they are so big ......
Kindest regards and a nice weekend MOnika
