This is a Shagya Arab Stallion jumping for the fun of it.This breed has such a great nature that a child could ride it without fear. The Shagyas are as tame as a golden retreiver and have a spirit of a war horse. This combination of character make these horses a dream breed for fun and sport. I hope you like the pict as it does not do the animal justice as see them in real life.

Nice action shot you got there Leo. I'm sure the photo looks much better in its original size... and as you said, that horse seen live is more impressive. Good timing!

A real action picture. A very good catch. Perhaps a litle dark in the background.
All the best,

Outstanding shot Leo. The whiteness of the animal and the fence provides a fine contrast to the dark background. I also like the contrast between the calm face of the horse and its forcefully moving body.
The only suggestion for improvement I can think of would be to crop some from the left and a bit for the bottom. I also think the picture deserves to be uploaded using the full 800 pixel available.

Wow! beautiful capture. It is very hard to freeze the animal in motion. you did a wonderful job here Leo. And the stallion looks powerful in your picture.

Fantastic action shot Leo.
Your right about the Arabian breed, they are the smartest of breeds. Nice composition, colour and detail.

the movement is nicely captured, well done.
I guess the picture could have been a bit bigger.
