I shot a horse show this weekend for a friend of mine. It was my first time attending one of these things. I was warned ahead of time how boring they are. It was pretty repetitive and I’m sure its fun if you’re competing. If you’re a spectator, expect lots of sun and dust. Luckily, the time flew by for me, so it wasn’t that bad.
Although they look stationary, Monica and Troy are about to go over a jump on this course. They placed 2nd during this timed run. I think they would have had first if she didn’t slow up at the end. Troy was a handful at his first show. His stablemate/girlfriend, Juno, was also in the show. He was incredibly jealous and was freaking out when other horses came near her. It was also kind of cute at times when he stood next to her and was being cuddly. I really wanted a shot of that, but it didn’t come out well on the iphone.
I forget which camera app I used to take the photo, but I edited with Snapseed and PhotoToaster.
