Photographer's Note

Flying Horse

All of that weight flying through the air – quite amazing! I wasn’t that close that I was about to get run down here having borrowed a 80-200 lens from work – I had to squeeze through the crowd and lean across the safety rail to get the shot but it was worth it to get this moment of a horse completely parallel to the ground. Note the photographer in the background!

As a non-horsey person I'm just amazed at the bravery of it all but being around this event you can see the stages people go through from childhood to achieve such mastery of the horse and one's own emotions. By the end I was really being drawn to the sport although I don't think participation is going to be part of my particular life path this time round!

p.s. if anyone is interested all of these images were single shot images - I like the excitement of getting it as good as I can get in one! At one point I was shooting and this guy with a motorwind shot off behind my head - I'd love to see what he got!
