ahhh, what a beautiful image you have captured. There's nothing as pretty as a trotting or running horse. This horse is magnificant. You were lucky to have seen him! Nice lighting, too.

What a simply stunning horse, the tail and the main are outstanding. I wish the legs were a little more in focus but still a great shot of an amazing subject!
