This image is nothing to write home about, but I’m posting it to encourage myself to go and shoot more. I went to my first Equestrian competition at Goucher last Saturday, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
It’s not often that you can get so close to horses and watch them in action on a regular basis. At Goucher, we’re lucky to have the opportunity to do both. I’m disappointed in myself for waiting until my Senior year to watch these shows.
From a spectator standpoint, I’m intrigued by the elaborate scoring and judging system used at these competitions. As a photographer, I know there’s potential for excellent photographs around those stables.
The thought of taking a beginning riding class next semester has even crossed my mind!
