    So, we knew Keelo (thoroughbred) wanted some room to run, he was just kinda pacing around the paddock. I was also in the process of giving a photography lesson to my friends horse camp kids, so I figured it'd be a good chance to help them work on timing and stuff. As soon as we let Keelo out he started messing with Ultimo (the Andalusian.. think Gandalf's horse from lord of the rings) and eventually they both started running back and forth together - pretty much my dream shot. I've been doing equine sports photography for years and had yet to catch a good action shot in the field. :D :D

    I really like the second one especially, the fact that the horse is off of the ground with a flowing mane really gives it a sense of the motion that you captured. Catching the motion like that is always an interesting task. :)
