Wow, this was a surprise!

Thanks for all the comments and votes. I thought this one would do OK cause clearly the horse had different ideas than the rider but I surely never expected to ribbon with this score. I went to this event thinking if I could get a great 'stop' image it would be perfect for this challenge. I caught only 2 stops. The horses were all pretty well behaved that weekend. Neither were as dramatic as they can be I was hoping for more air under the rider's hiney to show better that they weren't on the same plane as the horse. Apparently this one got the idea across enough anyway!
