    The pictures' highlights are blown to smitherines! You should use a filter for direct sunlight; google - Polarizer or Neutral Density in combo. Secondly, if you want to stop motion, you need a fast lens for a fast aperture; actually if the horse is outside under really good light, shooting at slower apertures will probably be necessary to compensate for depth of field.

    Assuming you are talking about the Nikon 18-200mm it will do just fine. The fastes aperture is f/3.5 at the widest and f/5.6 at the longest.

    I do an aweful lot of shots with this particular lens with its hood. I shoot at 105-135mm about 90% of the time when I am outside shooting portraits. It's a great second lens along with the 17-55.

    Sorry for being so long winded, but the bottom line is, I don't think it matters what lens, it matters what you do to make the lens work. If you want a wide angle 18mm is about 24 mmm on DX so you have to adjust from there. Good luck.
