Hey, great shot! You definately timed it perfectly, considering the determined stance the horse is taking.

Another thing I like about this picture is how the bull seems to be a little bit more blurry than the horse, which makes me feel like the horse is winning the fight. Weird, I know, but hey, its what I see!

Rock on!

Aweeeesome shot, Dale! I like her tack a lot!

Great shot! What camera and what kind of flash did you use? How was the lighting in the arena?

Thanks girls, I appreciate your comments, Jenni agreed the shot was done with the shot centered on the horse and rider, to blur the steer a bit, Disco here is the exif info, Nikon D-100 , 80-200 Nikon lens at about 120mm. SB-80 flash on manual setting -1.0 ex. and the arena was lit well but not direct sunlight, hence the manual setting on the flash.. This horse is absolutley awsome.. I have sold here many pics.. i just love when it is her turn to go, I know she will give me some excellant action shots every time all the time.. Thanks again ladies.. Good luck Dale

Great moment that you have captured, Dale :)

It is wonderful how you have captured cutting horse and rider confronting the steer and not backing down.

I am not a rider but I do know that this is what cutting horses are born to do!

Well done :)
