Photographer's Note

Taken last week at Horse Trotting in Menorca during a "warm up" session for horse and jockey.

Horse Trotting has been a popular sport in the Balearics for over 200 years, trotting races being held at weekends both in Mahon and Ciutadella. The jockey must prevent the horse from breaking into a gallop, hence the name "trotting". Allow the horse to break into a gallop and you're disqualified.

You can see the hippodrome near Mao very clearly if you click on Map:[view].

Shot in RAW and converted and edited in PSE9.

As always, all critiques/comments/advice are very welcome!
