Again, my daughter and her horse, Leo.

Since there was only the one nice spot of light in the otherwise dark arena, I had to wait for the “artistic” shots as Leo entered the light.

I like the composition of this one. It’s sort of interesting. Funny how Leo blinked as I took it – makes it look as though he’s running with his eyes closed. Could be he was squinting at the light. We’ll never know.

  1. He looks serene and joyful with his eyes closed.

  2. You know Indigo, Leo was such a lazy horse before my daughter started training him to barrel race. And he seems to love it. He’s still no super speed demon, but he loves to run the pattern.

  3. On my Facebook link, my friend Chris wrote: “Nice timing and great action shot Danita~”

    Thanks, Chris!!

  4. I look forward to riding again one day. Such a blessing.
