When I see that there is a show, I get a bit apprehensive. I know, that the atmosphere is tough. It is electrifying actually. The riders are competitive. The energy in the air is negative. For me. I love, love, love, though watching them. The competitor's. They are amazing. Something that I wish I could do, but I also know, I will never do this. Certain breeds of horses are made for this. Certain human's are made for this.
I guess, I will just photograph them.
the intensity of being first in line for an intensified ride through obstacles that are to be put to memory before the rider is tested on the course. Remember, the rider is trying to visualize the course, navigate their horse, and then, ride their horse to where she/he has total control.
Bravo, to the rider's and their horses!
