Gymkhana – Episode No. 3: ‘Focus and Velocity’

This was my third time, shooting a Gymkhana at the Casey Tibbs Western Center, located the San Diego Country Estates. I still missed many shots, in fact I think I missed most of them. However, I’m not blaming my equipment or myself too much for that, but the incredible speed and acceleration of the horse/rider duos.
Becoming more comfortable with the camera settings for this kind of event and environment, my goal was to show the focus and concentration of the riders, their speed and change of velocity, and reflections/emotional responses immediately following the ride.

    Below are some photos from the Ramona Santana Riders’ Gymkhana / Sunday August 21, 2016 at the Casey Tibbs Western Center.
