Show Jumping Pictures *Few Olympic Equestrians* (* PICTURE HEAVY *)

Hello everyone, I thought I would share some pictures I took two weeks ago at Rebecca Farms in Kalispell, Montana. It was called “The Event”; it was a three day event. I had to miss the first two days because of work and another show that I took pictures at in Spokane, Washington. Next year I will definitely be there hopefully for all three days. I think dressage and cross country would be great for photography purposes. Only one purpose was flown out from the cross country. Another had an aortic aneurism, which is too bad. The lady had said the horse just wasn’t right and stepped off. The second she did that, it dropped. I would be devastated if something like that happened to me.

They had a few Olympic equestrian riders from Canada and of United States, which was neat. I don’t know much about the event but am interested in learning. Some pretty steep jumps they had. I have a lot of respect for those individuals that three day event.

These are some of the pictures I took. I need to invest in a larger lens, which in time I will do but at this point can’t afford the eight-teen hundred. Ha-ha It was also very bright and I used a polarizer which didn’t help in my opinion because the pictures aren’t as sharp as I’d like them to be. I am happy though that they didn’t blow out too much. Thank you for looking.

These Pictures Are On The Novice Arena.

Looked Like A Pegasus.

I looked down at my camera for one second and miss a horse that stumbled. The rider was fine but not thrilled with her horse leaving her behind.


Arena One.

One Of The Triples.

Awesome pictures! Thank you for sharing! I love the variety of the jump designs--my favorite is the RR crossing one. :)

Great photos.

Love the look on the riders face in the one where the horse is walking away. Great shot.

Yeah that's my favorite too. Had a good laugh at that one. Can totally imagine myself doing the same thing, but shaking an angry fist.

Fantastic photos! I wish I was talented enough to get good action shots like that. They're always too early or too late.
