I'm not a big fan of horses or of horse photos but this is one that really sticks out. Focus is nice and sharp and you've caught the moment very well.

Very nice - excellent treatment of the topic.

Great shot... I find the hair straight up a bit distracting from the theme. Seems startled or surprised...

The stop action is amazing - I love the sharpness.

Great shot! I like the movement and the texture. You could almost see it's hart beating.

Personally, I don't like the way that almost everyone seems to put 'smooth and silky' in their title, as though to try and justify that their shot belongs in the challenge, which in the case of this superb photo is completely unnecessary. It must have been very difficult to capture the horse in motion in this way, and the sunlight coming off its body creates a great effect.

Great action capture. The colorerd background iis distracting. I wooonder if the photo would look more silky if it were in grayscale.
