Okay I have an entry for each Category.

**For the Under Saddle Category I have posted a picture of Zeus being ridden bareback; HOWEVER it may not be a good enough qaulity of picture so I have posted a backup picture of Ali being ridden English.**

Body Category - Headshot: Those Who Judge



Movement Category - Jump: I Cannon I Will



Under Saddle Category - Bareback: Gold Label




Under Saddle Category Backup Picture - English: Mr All In



Other Category - Best OTTB: Those Who Judge



This picture was taken ONE WEEK after Judge ran his last race. I rode him within the following week and he did wonderful W/T/C. One of the calmest OTTB's I've ever worked with. I think that once he realized he was done racing, he started enjoying anything and everything we did with or to him. (he had an incredible 49 starts! And retired 100%)

Question?

It says one per category...does that mean one picture per class in each category or one picture per category? Please let me know since I had a hard time picking pictures for only one category when I have several pictures that would fit in different classes in each category.

Thanks,
Emmi

Yes I mean, one picture per class, not category like I stated.
Sorry for the mix up!

Okay I am re-entering this contest with more pictures.

**For the Under Saddle Category I have posted a picture of Zeus being ridden bareback; HOWEVER it may not be a good enough qaulity of picture so I have posted a backup picture of Ali being ridden English.**

Body Category:

Headshot: Those Who Judge



Conformation: Mr All In



Color: Gold Label





Movement Category

Trot: Those Who Judge



Gallop: Those Who Judge



Other: Derby




Jump: I Cannon I Will



Under Saddle Category - Bareback: Gold Label




Under Saddle Category Backup Picture - English: Mr All In



Other Category - Best OTTB: Those Who Judge



This picture was taken ONE WEEK after Judge ran his last race. I rode him within the following week and he did wonderful W/T/C. One of the calmest OTTB's I've ever worked with. I think that once he realized he was done racing, he started enjoying anything and everything we did with or to him. (he had an incredible 49 starts! And retired 100%)

Funny: Derby



Derby came to us with an eye injury that required eye drops three times a day. He would fight us like crazy until someone decided to try giving him a beer (since racetracks tend to give them to calm the horses down) and sure enough it worked. Can you say right place with a camera at the right time? He got used to having a beer three times a day and his eye did get better.

Head Shot of Zags:

Imagining life without a horse is like imagining life without food, water and air.
