My Mom is the worst barrel racing photographer ever...

Title says it all.


I finally have someone to take some "action shots" of me and Bailey, and rather than stand close to the rail to get a good quality shot, she stands WAYYYYY in the back and snaps the picture, then proceeds to crop and resize it....as the pixelly photo says.... and puts my name on it.

Okay but as this is my first official action shot with Bailey I still think I need to share it no matter how much I hate it...LOL

Bailey Barrels 1 _2__0001.jpg

EDIT: It came out small.....Less pixels to see!

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I don't know, my husband may be in the running as well. For a horse guy, he sure doesn't know which one is mine.

Ha ha, it is a good start. Do you know what kind of camera she was using? Some have an "action" or "kids" setting that is best to use on action photos too.... which will help her out.

Maybe she's afraid of flying dirt hitting her in the face or something, LOL

It's a kodak something or other. I honestly don't know, but I have taken photos with that camera (It's mine, lol) and they normally come out great. But ya know, you crop and resize anything enough and it'll all come out pixelly.....and lol the dirt thing is a possibility, Bailey digs in and catapults debris at the spectators

My mom sucks at filming me doing anything while competing, be it jumping, gaming, flat classes, etc. because she's too busy actually watching me/cheering to pay attention to where the camera is pointing.
