Fun Ride ... zzz

I find fun rides very boring to photograph. Fortunately, I have a couple of photographers who don't mind photographing them. Lizzie was working for me the other day and I've just sold these prints earlier today. It was all happy and reasonably serious ... until the last one :) (The reason for this post.)

Re the critique, pricked ears are nearly paramount in these sorts of shots (even if there is a blink in the first). No pricked ears usually means no sale. And back to my leg position ... Lizzie is really good at this. With walking shots she'll click when the front hoof is millimetres from or just touching the ground. See how #1 (l/h pony) #2 and #3 are just about exactly the same leg position.

Having said the above, I suspect with #1 she was probably looking at the far pony with the pricked ears, the smile and the pony might have been slowing from a trot to a walk as I think she was watching the far hind hoof just before it hit the ground. (Rider's knee being centre of the photograph.)
