Everyone knows Pentax is useless for sport

Great shot and the expressions on both their faces is wonderful

This is just too much, I thought I had done well trading up to a K5ii now it looks as if I should have saved up a bit more.
Cracking shot by the way.

Thank you all very much
I think the lens helps - wonderfully fast AF.
But even good equipment won't let me get away with mistakes !! Still a lot to learn, particularly when the light is changing continuously. But the K3's a mean machine !

I'm waiting for the next K3 alliteration but thats only the tool. Your image allowed me to FEEL the jumper and the rider. The light and the stop-action is perfect. I've viewed it a few times and will be viewing it many times again. sincere thanks, tg

You've got the faces of the rider and horse beautifully sharp. Very good action picture.

This is a superb shot. Absolutely spot on in every way. Thankyou for this.

Thank you, Paul
I'm afraid horsey events have been a priority over the past few months so there has been little variety in my photographs !!
