beautiful captures all!

I am really enjoying the jumping photos, Jacob! Wonderful! :-D

Great horse event snaps! I would think that horse manure would do great things for Lois Anne's outdoor flowerpots! Call 352-690-7368 & inquire about their rates! Otherwise, try the bags of horse manure at the Ocala Fleet Farm! After all, Ocala is the horse capital of the world! Giddy up!

Regarding the last photo, I have a degree in Management. A lot of what I learned was manure.

Olivier said...

superbe serie, j'aime beaucoup la photo avec la fille sur la petite moto ;o))

Memphis MOJO said...

Sorry the HITs series is over.

"Manure management program" Sounds like a bunch of BS, teehee - I could use some of that on my rose bushes !!

Don and Krise said...

VP said...

All great pictures, but the last one steals the show! (with a perfect background)

These beautiful photos make me think that I have never posted about the "centre équestre" in Grammont, not far from where I live.

I like the little motorbike :-)))

Mo said...

Dan J. said...

Another round of stunning shots. A great mixture or action, humor, and candid capture. This looks like it must have been a very fun event to attend. Great Job !!!

That parting shot really made me grin.

Hilda said...

Such graceful horses. It is easy to see why some people could be so in love with them.

Thanks for the smiles too, with the little motorbike and the manure management program sign. :)

Saretta said...

I've been wondering how to manage all the manure building up around here lately... Have to give those fellows a call!

Lois said...

I suppose manure management is big business down there around all those horse farms! I have really enjoyed all the pictures of this event Jacob. Thanks for sharing!

Daryl said...

Last but certainly most important .. manure management .. I wonder if Wharton gives degrees in this ...

The funny-ness continues...

There was a preacher who was trying to sell his horse. A man stopped by to see how the horse rode. The preacher told the man that instead of saying, “walk", say, “praise the Lord,” and instead of saying, “whoa,” say, “amen.”
So the man got on the horse and said, “praise the Lord,” and the horse started to walk. The man then said, “praise the Lord,” again and the horse started to trot. He said it a few more times, then the horse started galloping. Suddenly a cliff appeared. The man yelled "Whoa!". The horse didn't stop. He tried yelling all sorts of things, and he tried to pull the horse up, but it wouldn't stop.
Then suddenly he remembered what to say. The man said, “amen.” The horse stopped right before they fell off. The man was so releived that he put his hand on his forehead and then said, ”Praise the Lord.”

I'm sure you found this to be especially funny, J!;)

Hey guess what? The sun is shining and it's going to be 42 degrees today! Yippee!

Music to my eyes!

JM said...

Very nice series and great motion on photos #2 and #3.

cieldequimper said...

Great action shots and two really funny shots too!

Trillian said...

Another great series! The fourth photo could be the cover of a sport magazine...wonderful!

Paula said...

Shooting in broad daylight isn't easy, these are great shots. You have quite an eye, J.

Andreea said...

Nice series, I think it catches the atmosphere of the event quite nicely.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Manure Management Program? I'd love to borrow that sign and put it up outside our Parliament in Ottawa. OOPS! Did I say that?

lewi14 said...

Yes, Stuttgart and Ocala should be twin towns.

Kate said...

I came to visit, surfed backwards and was amazed to see how many photos I have missed. So glad I'm here; the horse series is terrific!
