what a beautiful horse Frank... and the action shot is pretty good as wellsmile
....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: It was, Peter,thanks.
Wonderful shot of one of my favorites! Horses don't get much prettier than a paint... and he was quite the rider / roper wasn't he!
Frank L Croston.: A lovely horse, Elizabeth, but then they all were, and they all could ride some!
I always hope that the rider sees pix like these.
Frank L Croston.: Well we are going to another contest soon, and hope to show some then, Jacquelyn.

You ought to show these in a gallery, Frank
Frank L Croston.: That would be nice, Elisabeth, we keep saying we'll make an effort to one day....
The horses have to know what to do as much as the people on top. Excellent shot!
Frank L Croston.: They do, I'm sure, Mary, thanks.
Another cracker Frank. for a moment i thought the horse had 5 legs....
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Bill, it would seem they have sometimes!
Another good one Frank, this could be you chasing the little dog around your wedding venue.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Michael, don't worry, no dogs, no kids....
I guess the riders must have quite some courage to do this apart from the skill of using the rope. I've just noticed the fine work on the saddle.
Frank L Croston.: Yes they do, Brian, takes me all my time just to sit on a horse, never mind get it to move....smile Some of the saddles are beautiful. There were two saddles as the main prizes in this competition, probably worth around a $1000 each
Fantastic shot with the mane and tail flying Frank
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Janet.
