Rgis is one of those great wall hangers that will always spark up a conversation on the merit of the sport and that of the camera! Congratulations on your top ten finish.

Wonderful shot. The mud really adds something extra and you captured it very well.

8 - Good, muddy, capture. Difficult, but just a fraction more vivid coloring(s) and this at 640 width, be even better in my opinion.

I just voted on a horse race with a motion blur effect without any clear focus which I marked high. Here you have wa wonderful sharp image of a muddied field which shows great equestrian expression. Great capture, Good luck -9-

Three certainly are a number of horse images in this challenge. Several of which are scoring quite highly from me - this one included. You've done a nice job of catching an 'Action Shot' here without a doubt. The image is crisp and well focused and tells a story. Very well done.

Wet running there. As an English person I am more used to seeing sodden turf fly. But you caught the action with a nice shutter speed and exposure. 8.
