I realized that I didn't really need it.

At 3 fps, I was getting opposing footfalls in consecutive shots when photographing horses at the trot, so the shots were mostly indistinguishible, and if I got the footfalls wrong, they were wrong for the entire sequence. I wanted something faster so I would get different footfalls in each shot. Well, I got better at timing the shots, plus the interesting stuff happens at the canter anyway, so I've been happy with 3 fps.

Thanks. Obviously understanding the subject you're trying to photograph is important, as always.
