[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of the most beautiful horses I have seen with a fantastic long mane. This is a Dales pony who was at the show on Sunday. I spent ages trying to catch the right shot of him in movement with his mane flying about but eventually I had to wait until he was stood still. The young lad that was riding him was more than happy for me to take pictures of his pride and joy.
I have to say I have never seen so many young boys / men riding at a show, it was good to see rather than lots of little girls / ladies. Well done guys.

The Dales Pony is native to the Yorkshire Dales in the North East of England and related to the Fell Pony. In the last century Dale ponies were used to carry lead from the mines to the ports and were also used for agricultural work. The Dales pony almost became extinct in the 1950s but numbers increased after the formation of the Dales Pony Society in 1963.

All C&C welcome

Hi Jane,
Good photo of this beautiful horse. Well focused, good sharpness and contrast.

hello Jane,

What a brilliant mane and tail!
A lovely portrait of this boy-the lighting and the simple BG all act as an enhancement.
Well done. Joni

Hello Jane,
Lovely portrait, excelent sharp, colos and focus. You did the best!

Jane lHi:
I like this, wonderful colors, clarity and POV all within an excellent frame. Congraulations, very well done.

I think you did a fine job here capturing this black beauty. Even in the darkest parts of the image there are details showing, such as hairs, which is great!
Dancing and moving manes would be real nice, yes, but sometimes it's just not possible to get what you want... so you settle for a little less...
and in this case it is just a little.
