Stuck home with a sick one, working on a photo project for her while she sleeps, and thought I would share these. They were taken throughout the summer/fall and are all of my 12yo daughter and her "best friends"! Some of my absolute FAVORITE subjects to shoot!

Love these first two shots, don't love the bright sunlight and resulting harsh shadows in them. . .


1/1000 at f/5.6 IS0 200


1/640 at f/5.6 ISO 200

These two I really like, the light was good the afternoon I took these. It was so dry out that dust from the ring was flying everywhere, I was concerned for my camera, but actually like the way it looks around Hobbs' feet. . .


1/1250 at f/2.8 ISO 200


1/2500 (not sure why I went that fast) f/3.2 ISO 400

And, of course, can't forget the barn dog. . .


1/1250 f/6.3 ISO 200

This last one is an iphone shot, but my daughter and I love it because it's her new jumping "pony"! Bitsy is actually a draft horse, but one of the most enthusiastic jumpers at the barn. Too funny!


iphone - works in a pinch!!

Thanks for looking!

ETA: camera settings. All taken with the D700 , and the 70-200

Thanks, Barb!

I added the settings in the OP, but all were taken with the D700 and the 70-200 2.8. Love that combination.

Oh love! We showed Appaloosas growing up and my old retired gelding still lives at my mom's in Alabama. I swear every little girl should get to have a horse! These are lovely but that 3rd one is my fav! What a sweet face!

These are great - I personally like how you captured some of the motion with the children riding the horses. Very nicely done!

Thank you, everyone!

Tracie, she is better, unfortunately, it wasn't really sick, but more accurately, "down with a migraine". Slept after school for a few hours, got up, showered, ate and did homework, and then, of course, couldn't really fall back asleep because she had slept all afternoon. It can be a vicious cycle, because it affects a longer time period than just when she has the headache. I fully expect to pick a bear up after school today. . .

Tiffany, I remember you saying that you grew up with appaloosas! They are a favorite of mine, as well. My first horse was part appaloosa and part arabian. He had the great coloring of an appy, but the long flowing mane and tail and scooped face of an arab - I LOVED him. It is amazing what a relationship with a horse can teach a kid!

Couldn't find a picture of my old horse, but here is one of a pony that my daughter rode for a couple of years, he's totally adorable, right?



Here, also is another cantering one, taken on the "good lighting" day above, so around the same settings. . .



Thanks everyone!!

I love all these horsey pictures. I haven't gone riding for years and I was never very good at it, and never owned my own horse, but but I did have a lot of fun riding school and boarding horses, for several years and your pictures are bringing back those memories.

Love how crisp these shots are! Great job getting these, especially with the sun as intense as it looks. Yay for no wash-outs.

I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it.

gardencat, my daughter doesn't own either, and it's been great for her. She gets to ride all the horses at the barn, and when the boarders go on vacation, they always hunt her down to ride their horses while they are gone - she loves it!

kmarsh and memories, thanks so much. She doesn't always ride outside, so I have to take the opportunity when it presents itself, no matter what the conditions! You definitely learn a lot that way. . . LOL!

Thanks all.

Love the pictures! You didn't like the harsh shadows of the firs two but I like how clean and clear they looked. Your daughter must be in Heaven, having a horse to ride! I know I would have been at that age. I finally did get my very own horse when I was almost 17 but it wasn't until my 23rd birthday that I got my DREAM horse. He was an Arabian - gorgeous, wonderful and very nearly PERFECT. We had 26 incredible years together until he died (in 2007) at the age of 34. I will always miss him.

I'd post a picture of him if I had any idea HOW to post pics!
