Days Beginning
  Day's Beginning

"Early morning and the sky is so blue, the day is quiet, and these are the first horses in the paddocks. While facing the opposite way, this one came over and gave me a nudge on my back so I would again stroke his neck (which I had been doing earlier). That nudge surprised the heck out of me and almost sent me and my camera/tripod rolling down the hill. It reminded me again of the importance of not turning my back on these beautiful, but powerful animals. I'm more aware of that while riding, but need to be equally aware even outside the paddock."

"These two chestnut thoroughbreds were marching down the track side-by-side in unison. I focused closely on the nearer one so the aft one would be slightly "soft" and not the center of attention while its matched cadence was still obvious. I love the way they're so close together and almost identical, as if brothers."



Finish Line
  Finish Line 
  
Select: 

 

"Here, we have a race approaching the finish line. The excitement of the race peaks here. One or two riders usually wait until the last 30 seconds or so to try to move up on the outside and the crowd goes wild until it climaxes here at the finish line. Then it goes quiet again -- it's somewhat surreal!"



Riding High

Select: 

 

"I'm always astounded at the balance of a jockey. If that was me at that altitude above the saddle, I'd go over at the first unexpected turn or stop. Will I ever ride that well? (That's a rhetorical question and I don't want an answer -- I already know it and I don't like it). No matter what these young, restless, thoroughbred "teenagers on four legs" do, jockeys seem both prepared and agile enough to compensate. But I can dream, can't I?"
