I stumbled upon this equestrian gathering at the fairgrounds in Northampton the other day, wandered in and snapped a few off before moving on.
One from Gizmo, hand-held at 400mm:
And some shots from Allie, my 24-105mm L-series zoom:
This one is cool for having all four off the ground, a testament more to the speed of the horse than the height of the jump:
In that last shot, the horse and rider had just cleared the jump at left at high speed, wheeled and attacked this jump while still making the turn. I don’t know if that’s considered “good form,” but it sure was exciting to watch!
