These are very good! I esp love the first two. What camera do you use? One thing I can suggest is to zoom in so that your subject is in the exact centre (or as close as you can get, it can be quite hard), or not in the centre at all, if that makes sense... My brother taught it to me, and I like it a lot. Here's some examples of mine:

Nice Pictures :-)

Thanks, Lovestory! Yours are amazing! I use a Kodak easyshare max z990, but it's broken...I used to have another one that my father took for a vacation to Mexico...and I've never seen it since:( Any new camera suggestions? Dads planning on getting a new one, so either I can have his old one or his new one. Thanks, SouthernTrails!

Cameras are expensive, that's for sure. I like photography but I just use my iPhone or my mother's phone to take pictures, I've never actually invested in a camera of my own. Both of your photos look amazing! I can't wait to get riding again to take some more horse photos!

i'd definately recommend canon SLR's. they are great cameras. i use a 400D, but you can get cheaper ones like the 1100 or 1500D. some good photos, and i agree with LoveStory10. there's also something you may have heard of called the rule of thirds, which i often use. or, as was suggested earlier, simply having your subject straight in the middle. here are some examples of mine:
